first, let me be clear, this isn’t aimed at you, but the list in general. i don’t understand how you can have an “all state” in every class. it’s basically just listing the top 4 from state. 12 kids PER weight class don’t need to be all state. we don’t need 168 kids being named “all state”. it severely waters it down, especially when it’s just a copy and paste of state results. if we’re gonna do all state, then it needs to be just that.. “ALL State”. as in one group of all classes combined. Have a first-third team like college and pros do. 3 guys/girls from each weight across the state. just my 2 cents

I agree and thought the same when I first saw this. I didn’t think there was a such thing as an all state team lol

These things don't matter and it doesn't water anything down.  It's just showing the general public who placed top four.  What does "all state" mean, what does it get you?  At least it has objective criteria.  There was an article that just came out in the tennessean where we have all mid-state and it's not accurate bc the guy who wrote it doesn't appear to follow wrestling, didn't appear to invest much time researching, and seemed to pander to his largest readership.  At the end of the day, what does it even matter?  Again, is this so when a 70 year old man and a 50 year old man sitting around the fire can say, I was "all-state" back in 2023?  Who the heck cares?  No one is getting to the next level with an "All State" on their resume.

There are approximately 200 wrestling teams in the state of tn so your chance af being on this list is roughly 1 in 18 ithere are 78 d1 wrestling teams and the top 8 make all american so your odds of making all american in d1 is roughly 1 in 10 so respectively its harder for the everyday kid to make all state than it is for a d1 wrestler to make all american

Every sport does this.  Football has has an "All - State " team for each of its divisions, usually with 4 to 6 guys listed per position.   It's a note-worthy award that's been watered down over the years- nothing new to just wrestling.

 

If you want a laugh- check out the "All-Region" teams in Football.  In Tennessee, each coach gets to pick their own players that are deemed "all-region".  Because of this, you usually get 6 "all-region" quarterbacks for a region that only has 6 teams.

you lost me. you think it’s easier to all american at the NCAA level than it is to medal in Tennessee..?

 

 that’s…. quite the take. Heck, it’s harder to make an NCAA roster than it is to medal in Tennessee. Let alone reach the podium. Just because there’s more high schools than colleges doesn’t mean it’s harder to place here lolol but thanks for the free comedy show :roflol:

Not saying it's easier but most high school kids have no desire to wrestle in college im saying the odds are better for a d1 wrestler to make aa than they are for a tn high schooler to make all state I dont even know why adults get so bent on downgrading accomplishments for KIDS because i promise you that every one of those kids on that list worked his or her butt off to be where they are so instead of making snide comments or saying that the mathematical odds are dumb maybe adults would be better served to pat them on the back and tell them good job

    • After talking with people from the big school side, their problem was the manner in which it happened I only watched the video so what I can see that seems like a valid argument.. Knox gets hit for misconduct at the beginning of the match so he doesn't want to be the one to go to the table so all of the sudden 2 other Cleveland coaches appear... how is that possible when only 2 are supposed to be in the corner? I was told "7 coaches came out on the mat" I fully believe that was an exaggeration. It was coined to me as the "Cleveland redo" which is hilarious. But seriously the problem with what happened there has more to do with the STATE TOURNAMENT being done on AAU'S stupid tiny mats instead of full sized high school mats. 
    • Check that. This next one is the most important.
    • Agreed. Josh is a very high quality person who offers a low key personality that will complement the high strung HC. Solid defensive coach who will run a fundamentally sound scheme. Been around both the middle school and high school programs at Heritage for quite awhile. Married to an Assistant Principal at HHS. Who is the new weight room coach?
    • Looked like he had his palm on the laces pulling Heflins heel into his hamstring. I’d have to see some crazy clear footage to think it was different. I had a great view of it down on the floor. If he got tangled or caught up in the sock it didn’t look like that’s what he was going for. I’ve seen the one video posted in here I’d love to see a different one. Apparently the live stream was trash 
    • This deserves…is the thread. Think it’s on page 2. It’s the YouTube one by Matt and it zooms in well   Video shows he had sock/shoe with refs right there to see rather clearly.
