So that would be the top 4 Wrestling States.My top 2 Western PA 1, Eastern PA 2 or Southern PA 1 and Northern PA 2.
That's how it was for me. I was pretty good in NY but when we got to Lehigh for the National Preps I got my ass handed to me in the first round by some PA kid. I remember thinking, "Oh, that's how good you have to be..."I stayed at the ramada one time on a golf weekend and there was a wrestling clinic occurring. Talked to some coaches at the bar and one of them commented that he loved bringing his team up from down south to wrestle PA teams. It was an ego check to let them know that they weren't as good as they thought they were. They'd dominate their state/area, but normal PA HS teams would beat them or give them a tough match.
