This was another one that was a little iffy in the beginning but is getting called better now.  The one thing I can say on this is this is not a step out rule, but it is being called that way by some officials, but not all officials.  Many of them are understanding the aciton part of the rule.  We had a match where there was a flurry.  OUr back ended out to the line.  A fake made us sprawl taking us out of bounds and we followed it up with an immediate reshot to a deep single leg.  Match was stopped for stalling and we didn't get to finish that takedown.  My argument here is the rule is intended to make action happen.  My wrestler knew he was going to get called if he didn't come back in, so the rule did what it was suppose to do.  It made action happen.  Then the official stopped the action.  And I got my warning for the day.  Which is fine.  I will take a warning for something like that and then I will be good the rest of the day.  Every step out is not stalling.  We had another one where a wrestler blast doubled us and took us 15 feet outside of the boundary.  That was definitely acton and we got called for stalling   This is being called better, but defining what is aciton and what istalling will improve the consistency of the call.

here is the easy call.

this has been called a lot better.  Everyone was wandering in the beginning and there was a lot of inconsistency.  but I feel we are coming together on this one.  I don't think it ever intended to change wresting.  It just intended to not even let that traditional backbow as used in college wrestling even begin to happen.

That video shows the backbow that has always been illegal in high school wrestling and legal at the college level.   I personally used that one a lot in college.   What is different is the immediate stoppage upon grabbing the ankle as PD.  That in itself doesn't change things much.  When it gets expanded to other techniques, it changes things a lot.  Crossface and ankle when used to the side should be allowed.  (leg whip)    A variation of the leg whip when you step through the legs is a bit more physical (inside turk).  Neither of these moves are a traditional back bow, but the inside turk does get paired with that turk move they are trying to eliminate. That is the one I am questioning at the moment.  I love that technique.  Very effective.  Just want to make sure we can use it.

How about a crotch lift?  We got called for an illegal hold for doing this Saturday.  Lifting thigh off the ground to get our leg in and defend the high crotch.  Again, a common maneuver and not pictured in the illustration

Is a crossface to a leg whip a back bow?  We use the knee and ankle to whip this over when our opponent is flat all of the time.

so is an inside turk a back bow?  This is not pictured in the illustration.  Think how high school wrestling will change if you can not use this maneuver.

We could never do a back bow in high school wrestling, but we used to be able to go half way as in this video.  Now this not allowed and is pictured in the rule book.  This is very clear.  The rule book does define a backbow "as pictured in the illustration"

Wrestlers, coaches, and referees need to get on the same page on this.  Saturday revealed lots of questions.  Not blaming referees at all.  It is confusing.  The rule book says a back bow as illustrated, but it is going a lot farther than as illustrated.  By defining what is and what is not a back bow, we will avoid a lot of problems.  Here is the move that they are trying to avoid.  This has always been illegal in high school wrestling, but legal in College.  They have changed the wording, but the intent is the same.  They are now stopping it at application instead of pressure which stops a lot of high school techniques that we do.  The question becomes what is a backbow, and what is not a backbow.  When I reed the rulebook I read it as the move "backbow", not any maneuver that bows the back, as there are a lot of those.  This is the move that imo is behind the intent of this clarification.;_ylt=AwrC3PHaNPJbaRgA2_oPxQt.;_ylu=X3oDMTB0N2Noc21lBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNwaXZz?p=back+bow+wrestling&type=b1pr_7902_CHW_US_tid1351wn&hspart=iba&hsimp=yhs-1&ei=UTF-8&fr=yhs-iba-1#id=1&vid=3a882362215d9bb6364b14a9e91b6d35&action=view

Things are moving well.  First order of business is to order sublimated gear.  WE have some really nice gear ready for the kids.  Go to this site to order your singlet for the season.

There is also a polo for the kids to wear to school and parents to support the kids at meets, and a wrestling cap.  Everything gets shipped to me and I will hand out at practice middle of November.

For kids that don't get the memo, we will have some quick screen print stuff that we can use to get the kids outfitted, but I am sure they will want the sublimated gear.  It is starting to get real.

We have a full middle school staff at Central High School as of Friday.  Our season will start after football and extend to the end of January.  Haven't heard where middle school state tournament is yet.  We don't really have a budget to travel far from CHS, but if it is local we can go and that will be our last event of the year.  I am excited for the kids.  It will make a difference in the programs in Keller ISD
