As always the Outlaw Tournament in Allen shakes up the ranking boards with #1 ranked wrestlers getting beat. Undefeated wrestlers getting their 1st loss. Unranked wrestlers making their presence. Over all it shows each wrestler exactly where and what they need to get ready for the state tournament in Feb.
