  1. If I am correct, the National Preps this year is the same weekend this year as the Tennessee State Championships. I know that has been an issue in the past but would not be an issue this year. Actually this year would be the perfect year to do this since the Prep is the same weekend. I want to go ahead a say, in no way do I want to take anything away from any one of these great wrestlers that work their tails off to become a state placer. No matter what it is a great accomplish. I just want to give all these wrestlers another chance at a high level tournament that they might not be able to get due to a number of reasons. There are great wrestlers in all the divisions and many of them have aspirations of wrestling in college. This would be another chance to show case their wrestling against top level talent.
  2. Would it be better if we did a weigh in on Friday night(that way they can eat for Saturday morning and have an earlier start to the tournament) and added say 3lbs to the state weight classes on Saturday, meaning 106 + 2lbs Christmas allowance + 2lbs allowance for consecutive days wrestling = 110lbs + 3lbs allowance making 106lbs now 113lbs and 113lbs now 120lbs. Would that be a better way to be more encouraging to kids to come? I know that doesn't make sense since at that point every weight class bumps up, but that would allow wrestlers to eat and not worry as much about cutting weight, and most wrestlers bump up for the next season anyways. I would want to invite all 6 placers and then place the top 6 from there, but am open to all suggestions. Jacob Freeman Head Coach MTSU Wrestling [email protected]com
  3. Goodmorning wrestling family! I was curious as to what has stopped us from creating a tournament that invites the state players from all the divisions for a tournament in the past? I know the National Prep is one big reason. What would the interest in this be? I would like to put something together at MTSU if there is an interest. My idea was more along the lines of doing a Triple Crown of sorts, inviting the 6 place winners from division at state to a tournament that would include folkstyle, freestyle, and Greco for the guys division and freestyle and Greco for the girls division. Would this be of interest to anyone? I thought about having a freestyle and Greco clinic that would be open to all wrestlers before this as well to kind of kick start the freestyle and Greco season. Please respond to this or email me at [email protected] with your suggestions on dates etc and if your wrestlers would be interested in this. Or if you have freestyle/Greco experience or known someone who does that would like to be a clinician. If you have any other ideas that you would like to see happen I would've to hear those as well. Thank you, Jacob Freeman Head Coach MTSU Wrestling [email protected]
  4. My fiance lost her engagement ring at the beginner tournament yesterday at Siegel High School. If anyone may have found it, please give me a call at 615-714-5484 or Coach Freeman of Siegel High School at 615-598-8419. She is pretty torn up about losing it so please if you were at the tournament ask your parents and wrestlers if they have seen it. If you think you have found it, I can send a picture of it to verify it. Thank you for your time and good luck this season! Coach Freeman MTSU Head Wrestling Coach [email protected] 615-714-5484
  5. WrestlingGod, that is correct! I had a few schools contact me after my finals match as well! Yes there is always chances to move up and I am more than happy to help anyone who wants to come compete at MTSU for whatever their reasons may be, reach whatever their goals are whether it is to simple continue their love for the sport of wrestling, have a stepping stone to a higher level of collegiate competition, or even a higher level such as international competitions. We are working hard to help all of our wrestlers reach whatever their goals are! We currently have a wrestler that's goal is to transfer to a D-1 school, more specifically Iowa, to wrestle. We will be videoing our matches and contacting their coaches along with other schools coaches after seeing where he is at after this season to try to get him to his goal. I will take any amount of kids and any amount of years any wrestler wishes to compete at MTSU as my main goal is to grow the sport in Tennessee as a whole and give the kids another opportunity to continue their careers in the sport they love!
  6. Also a little more incentive/information that might be interesting to some, you can compete in the NCWA right out of high school for up to 3 entire years and still be eligible for 4 years of NCAA wrestling! That is 7 years of college wrestling! If that piques your interest let me know! Jacob Freeman MTSU Wrestling Head Coach [email protected].com 
  7. Goodmorning wrestling family! Your MTSU Blue Raiders have had a quiet fall semester but we have been working hard getting better each week! Our spring semester we will be competing more and will be looking to get after it on the mat in search of some national titles! Our spring semester schedule is as follows: *subject to change* January: 18th - Volunteer Duals @UTK 19th - Tornado Women's Open @King College Feburary: 2nd - Cumberland Open @Cumberland University 9th - Newberry Open @Newberry College 22nd - Emmanuel Women's Open @Emmanuel College 28th - Mid-Atlantic Conference Tournament 29th - Mid-Atlantic Conference Tournament March: 12th - NCWA National Championships 13th - NCWA National Championships 14th - NCWA National Championships We are also doing our best to recruit as many wrestlers as possible in the hope to grow our team the sport at the collegiate level. We have both a men's and women's wrestling team in which we are trying to grow both programs. Our men's team competes in folkstyle in the NCWA, but do not let that discourage you from joining. We compete against every level of competition from NCAA D-1 to NAIA to NCWA. A lot of wrestlers compete in the NCWA in order to get more time to prepare for the NCAA level. When I competed here at MTSU back in 2015 the wrestler who I wrestled in the national finals went to the Navy Academy the next season and made the D-1 NCAA Championship Tournament as a freshman. The wrestler who won the weight class below us went on to compete for Maryland's D-1 program. As for our women's team, they too compete in the NCWA in folkstyle, but we compete in both folkstyle and freestyle throughout the year in order to maximize our competitions and get ready for the next level! So whether you are looking to continue wrestling for fun, or looking for that stepping stone to the next level we would love you have as many wrestlers, both men and women, on our team as possible. If you know of anyone who might be interested or know of anyone you believe I should get in contact with and keep an eye out for this year or in the future please let me know. Hope to see you all around this season at tournaments! Good luck everyone this season! And do not forget, GO BLUE RAIDERS! Jacob Freeman MTSU Wrestling Head Coach [email protected]

  12. MTSU Wrestling Club is looking into hosting a preseason tournament/Super 32 warm up here in Murfreesboro for all ages. Wrestlers will be divided up by weight classes, age, and experience as much as possible so the more participants the better we can divide everyone up. Not sure the details yet but I am looking at September 28th or October 5th as the date(any thoughts?). When I figure out all the information I will get it uploaded on trackwrestling and then will post the information and link here. Thank you, Coach Freeman Head Coach MTSU Wrestling [email protected]
