Power Hour Podcast with Max Norman!

Recommended Posts

Max is special and most importantly he really is a good kid.  My son, who was a senior and went to a different high school down the road a bit, spent a good portion of last summer/fall wrestling Max at Nahshon's and when I went to one of the club practices I couldn't get over how much he had changed physically.  Night and day.  I was texting another Dad as I was watching Max go live with my son and I said Max was a dark horse to win whatever weight class he was at.  It was that apparent and I had no doubts.  I should have said he was the favorite in hindsight, lol. My son had previously warned me that Max was a complete hand full even before his freshman year had started.  Max's motor is fantastic (I think it is his best attribute) and he wins a ton of matches by simply outworking his opponent.   Max's success isn't a surprise to any of the parents and wrestlers around here, I can assure you of that.  Also, don't forget that Max has been at practice for years and years getting beat up by the likes of Hunter Mason and Kodiak Cannedy plus all the DB players from a couple years ago and then throw in his early coach being Joe Kemmerer (the importance of Joe cannot be overstated, outstanding technician and a no non-sense hard ####).   Max is equipped to deal with whatever someone brings to the table.  

Stay humble and hungry Max.  Enjoyed watching you wrestle last year.

    • Anyone from MJ want to make a bold prediction on the record and seed going in to the playoffs?   
    • I agree.  Wade's were great.  I don't see Summit winning a playoff game this year.  Ravenwood has a chance to go deep in the playoffs.  Shelby Co has some studs.  I wouldn't count out Sumner Co either.  I don't think the West side is as strong as the East so I think this is the year a surprise candidate could arise and make the Clinic Bowl.  
    • Wonder when the new TSSAA classifications will come out? There really was some wild placements this go-round. It helped Martin Westview get in 2A and win their first gold! Congrats to them. Wonder how they would have faired last year in 3A? Dresden has 1 silver in 2A & a gold in 1A. We’re either one of largest 1A’s or one of smallest 2A’s, hovering on that borderline. Thing is, it’s still only 11 on field at a time. And I have seen 15-16 member teams whoop huge numbered teams with 3x the players, saw it more than once. So anything is always possible for sure. Anyways.. I’d guess it’ll be after the season before they redo everything again. But whether 1A or 2A, Dresden will probably have a pretty large amount of players on sidelines for next few years. Which is always good, ain’t it?. I heard our coach say on a recent podcast that it’s amongst the biggest number of players he’s ever had in his 12 years of coaching. And said also that our middle school team is thriving with lots of participation & development. Which if there is a “secret” to top-tier HS teams, I’d say that’s it: the feeder programs (mid. school & JV) sending up to varsity some studs-in-the-making. Teams that are always in the playoff & championship mix don’t get there by accident, do they? This year will be good for all of us… the better the competition, the better you become. And this year there will be some great games on our side of the state, I feel it in my bones. .. Or is that my arthritis acting up? Ha. 
    • Bad decision IMO. This team needs the reps.
    • BA had the biggest line we have seen so far.  We got LA Friday.
