Dude, no wonder you were being recruited in football...that man had huge hips and knew how to use them...he pinned nearly everyone he wrestled. Good job Rx, I've always had great respect for your postings and now even more! Have an outstanding day!
178 and HW were the top two weight classes in Oklahoma at the time. Going into my senior I weighed about 210. HW at the time was unlimited. I started trying to pull to 178 at Christmas break. I made weight at 178 once, but couldn't hold it. When I weighed in at regional I weighed about 182 pounds and couldn't drop the other 4 without doing illegal stuff. So, when I wrestled Flemmons in the second round (I won my first round match) I gave up about 80 pounds to him. He was bigger, stronger, and faster than I was on the mat. Still, there were two people in the regional that he didn't pin, Joey Fowler and me. He just beat the crap out of us.
The school I went to in Iowa wanted me to wrestle and play football, but I was caught again between the top two weights. When I got there I had bulked up to about 230. My choices were wrestle HW/unlimited, which I didn't want to, or pull to 185, which was insane.
