    J. Lampe might have a case here too. But man, those four weight classes occupied by Ervin, Boston, Fausz, and Blackwell are probably the strongest four in KY history.
    Myers is now a 3x undefeated state Champ and the only wrestler in the list undefeated in HS .

    Would you really put them in that order and do you actually follow the sport , no one in Ky managed a score against Myers and he only gave up one when he was seriously injured in a match he won easily this yr !!
    3 yrs undefeated in and out of season with two AA 3 state titles and 2 nat titles , ????? Has anyone ever accomplished as much in the state as Campbell county's first ever 3x champ .
    I'm not sure people actually understand the sport .
    I do not think there has ever been a 4x state champ at 220lbs by anyone in the Nation let alone ky . Never in Ohio or ky for sure . Perhaps no or will understand just how good someone was untill they are in college !!!

    Brock .Austin ,and probably JO JO Carr.in whatever order
    Austin Myers ,just won Central regionals Freestyle and Greco Wrestling Championships as well as both Most outstanding wrestler
    Awards one in each style giving up only 1 point in each style .After not competing in these styles in three years but being a former Ohio Schoolboy and Cadet State Champion and Fargo and national duals competitor ,he shocked a lot of people and dominated in one of the toughest regional and freestyle Greco Tournaments in the country without wrestling a single match in these styles in years and mostly training with kids who do not know the first thing about Freestyle and Greco Wrestling .Jay Yenter ,father of College wrestler and former Ky state champ Garth Yenter has been working closely with Austin and the two seem to be working out the kinks .Austin will have to decide wether to try and be Kys first ever Double all American or focus on one style for The national Championships to be held in Fargo once again in July .

    Brock Ervin was competing in the regionals as well as many other Ky standouts ,Brock was injured in his first match where he was winning convincingly before taking a nasty cut to the eye ,nothing to be worried about but he was not able or allowed to compete any more duiring the weekend ,Brock has committed to Illinois where he will be with a few other Ky standouts Fahy and another Ervin his Brother I do believe.

    I only saw a couple of Austin's Freestyle matches at Central Regionals. And he simply dominated those two matches. He also looked a little leaner than I've seen him in the past. I know he lost a match at VA Beach Nationals, but there aren't but a handful of kids in this country that can give ATM a match. I can't imagine what he'd do if he cut down to 195 for next season.

    Yes that match he lost in the finals at jr nationals was his one and only loss ever in HS folkstyle wrestling or HS wrestling period ,he is leaner but not lighter he weighed in at 219.8 this weekend and no chance in He!! he drops to 195 YET without another go at 220 at sr nationals when he is on point.
    Might be 197 in college but who knows.I think one of his reasons for wrestling freestyle Greco this year is to make up for what he lacks in training in the season as far as comp he was challeneged a bit in ohio and ky as a soph and fresh not as much as a jr .
    surprised only he and Brock wrestled Cen Regionals ,thus my reasoning for putting them at the top .NO FEAR .

    It was too bad about Brock. I didn't get to watch much of the Junior matches, because my son wrestles cadet, but made a point to watch ATM wrestle. Besides my son, there were a few other KY cadets, but not a ton of wins as competition was tough, and you could see some of our kids (mine included, who did manage to win a couple and just needed one more win to get to the round robin for the finals in his pool) weren't totally comfortable with freestyle. We wanted to do Greco, but couldn't as we had some other things to attend to on Sunday.

    Yes Brock was winning when he got injured im sure he would have done well and he has plenty of time before fargo to get it together. and it was good some of the other wrestlers were there particularly cadets ,its a bit different for some but most ky wrestlers I would think were better at freestyle than Greco not having the numbers to go with in freestyle and Greco or the tournaments in state to attend like some of the other states have ,Ky should have a few more experienced kids in the mix next yr Austin will be back and im sure the other Union and CC kids who can come back will as well .
