Perhaps there's also a self-reporting requirement like there is for fellow attorneys?

I feel like it should be more often. How is this okay? 3 years? Dang...

Numbers this year were much lower compared to last year. We can do this same thing for JR Duals, if we had our best kids out there, we could have one hell of a team. I think we all need to come together and understand why kids are not interested in attending. I always have thought it is because a lack of FS/GR training and priority. We are not going to have All American Numbers like Ohio, Pennsylvania or Illinois at this point, that is all with growth and time. I honestly don't know why these kids are not interested, that is the question and something that needs to be explored. I do not post this to make anyone mad, just getting my thoughts out there, I know everyone works hard at what they do and I am not questioning that, I just think we should explore some other ideas and beliefs.

I do have some concerns currently, and there are probably a ton of factors I do not look at, but one big issue is this year we had a 5 hour camp....I know of a bunch of other state organizations that take the kids to a college campus and have them train there for a week or two, coaches get to know kids, kids get to know coaches, they all can get close to the same page on techniques and FS/GR philosophies. 5 hours does not accommodate that.

Another issue is the lack of coaches who are confident to coach FS/GR at the level needed to get the kids to a competitive level at national level tournaments. How do we fix that, I really am not sure.

This next one is a tough one to bring up but I feel it has to be. Our qualification process is not wrong or bad, it is very similar to other states. I do see lack of high level kids at those events, which allows for low level kids to be making these Dual and National Teams, and that hurts our performance. The better kids see no value in the National Dual event if they aren't going to get any good matches, its a vicious circle, again going back to how do we even get the best kids to the Dual Qualifiers and TX-USAW FS/GR State? I think we should put more priority on Regionals. Southern Plains, Western Regional, Northern Plains, Southeast Regional...the USAW Regionals. This will give our better guys some stiff competition and an incentive to compete against high level guys, also allowing them to individually qualify themselves, I have always been a big supporter of regionals and there are growing and offer some great competition before high level events such as duals and Fargo.

I think whole heartedly, that inside this state, as big as it is, there are people that can be assets to the growth of TX-USAW FS/GR. I believe we all need to get into a room, at these state meetings that nobody attends but then complains about all their issues, and hash out what we all think and believe, and be open to what everyone has to say. There is not any secret sauce, no 100% fool proof approach. But I think there are A LOT of things we can all work on and clean up to help the kids, cause if thats not each coaches goal, than they are the issue.

Again I say this not attacking or doubting or calling anyone out, I have been here for a few years now and have seen a lot of great things but also a lot of areas we can improve. I do not know it all, I know that, but I know what other powerhouse states do and I talk with them and pick their brains on how we can grow. I really hope that we continue to make strides in the right direction and grow TX-USA and UIL Wrestling.

106: DNC (Garcia)
113: DNP 3-2 (Delgado)
120: DNC (McClain)
126: DNC (Skudlarczyk also worth nothing that not a single placer from the entire weight competed from 6A)
132: DNC (Martinez)
138: DNP (Manibog)
145: DNC (Parks)
152: DNC (Robinson)
160: 1st Place (Ferrari)
170: DNP 6-2 (Redlin)
182: DNC (Vasquez)
195: DNC  (Ingleheart, but worth noting that runner up McCoy Garnered AA status)
220: DNC (Barnes)

So out of 14 total state champions we had a total of 4 compete.
