Top 10 College Matches of 2013-2014

So we're moving up the ranks to the Top 10 College matches of 2013-2014 and this was a tough one!  Like the High School Top 10, I wanted to sprinkle in a variety of matches from different parts of the year.  These stretched over the early parts of November all the way to NCAA's and everywhere in between.   10. Nick Dardanes v. Zach Beitz-The relatively unknown Nittany Lion nearly pulls a huge upset in front of the Minnesota crowd, as the pressure, tension and noise escalated Nick Dardanes found a way to get it done late! 9. Todd ...

Everybody loves an upset! It’s one of the great moments of exhilaration and excitement within our sport. Many billed this year as the “year of the upset” within our sport, and I tend to agree. A season like this (across all ages and styles) produced more upsets in short period of time than I ever recalled. This is my order and my opinion. Some, I think we’ll have widespread agreement on, some are a matter of personal preference and what surprised me personally. Here they are. Enjoy and remember: It can happen to anyone! ...

This is getting serious. Everyone knew Zeke Jones returning to ASU would be good for the program.  Very few thought we'd see a haul like this, this early. ASU had a banner recruiting class going, already having landed Anthony and Zahid Valencia from California.  Then came Pennsylvania's Josh Maruca.  Now another big name is headed to ASU by way of Minnesota - Lance Benick.  Benick informed flowrestling of his verbal commitment late Friday. The recent addition of Chris Pendleton to the staff at ASU assuredly was an added bonu...

Ironman Adam Coon - Flowrestler Of The Week

Anyone else still trying to catch their breath after that week of Junior World action? Me too. Our athletes battled and wrestled with pride throughout. Though no golds are coming back to the states we are bringing home 10 medals across all 3 styles. 20% of those medals are because of one man. Adam Coon. Coon qualified and competed in both Greco Roman and Freestyle winning Bronze in each. Coon was a dominant force in matches won and very narrowly lost his Freestyle semi to rival Amarveer Dhesi of Canada. Coon has said before he has a hard time d...
