Chickenman was being colloquial with "neck of the woods." Catka lives in the next town over from me in the thick of the PHL suburbs. Brrokhaven has woods -- about a half-block of woods behind a strip mall.
I wouldn't presume Amos will have an easy match. Catka made the 2019 world team, and in 2018 was 2nd to Kerk.
Not a fan VTech but that do have something pretty nice going on down there with their program. Definitely on the come up. Obviously nothing compared to what you guys have but that goes without saying lolHunter also said while he hopes his brother comes to Va Tech with him, that Ryan is very very smart and getting looks from Penn, Columbia , etc....
Is Amos a good bet to be a career 197 pounder, or perhaps move up to 285 at some point?Oh my bad I thought he was from the sticks or something. Yeah saying it will be "pretty easy" is probably pretty dumb by me lol. Wouldn't be the first time I said something without thinking. Catka looks anyway a little quicker and wayyyy stronger at least upper body wise. Plus he's just bigger so yeah my bad lol.
Having said that I've seen Amos beat Kerk in freestyle and it was crazy closs or anything but anyone can be beat any given day.
Speaking about Kerk, what is his knee injury, and do you think he will get it fixed after the trials?
I never heard of interest either way. IIRC his other finalists were Wisconsin, Iowa State, and Oklahoma.Was psu ever interested in nijenjuis? I know hes going to pursue, but kids a stud.
Well that's what I wondered wrt your 2nd place comment. He is a notch below Brooks so do you think they just stayed away from that weight range ?I never heard of interest either way. IIRC his other finalists were Wisconsin, Iowa State, and Oklahoma.
He looks like a very good college prospect -- should be in the mix for 2nd at B10s the next few years.
