2016 Junior Freestyle Preview



The time is finally here. Our Junior Freestyle tournament is loaded with studs. Just glancing out the amount of high level wrestlers that are slated to battle has me so anxiously excited.

We've had some surprise entries that we didn't see when we first looked at the list that have just made things even juicier. Lots of guys already competed in the Greco tournament and will be looking to double up while some other are showing up fresh and new in the hunt for a stop sign.

This is going to be something that you don't want to miss, so keep it locked right as we bring you all the action LIVE.

#1-Malik Heinselman, CO - UWW Cadet FS Champ, Returning Double Fargo Champ
Brenden Chaowanapibool, WA - Cadet Greco Runner-up
Cevion Severado, MO - UWW Cadet Greco Runner-up
Matthew Petersen, MN - 2015 Fargo Greco AA
Riley Weir, OK - Returning AA
Brenden Garcia, CO - Greco Champ

Commentary: After winning a spot on the Cadet World Team with a win over Severado,  Heinselman is the guy to beat here. He won the stop sign in both styles last year and is looking to add another to his trophy case. Chaowanapibool wrestled in both the Cadet and Junior Greco tournaments, claiming runner-up finishes in both.

Willie's Picks:  1. Heinselman   2. Weir   2. Severado   4. Garcia
Holmes' Picks: 1. Heinselman  2. Severado  3. Weir  4. Garcia
CP's Picks: 1. Heinselman 2. Severado 3. Chaowanapibool 4. Petersen

#9-Elijah Varona, FL - UWW Junior Freestyle 6th
#13-Brandon Kaylor, WA - UWW Cadet Greco 3rd
Ty Smith, NV
Tyler Cunningham, NE
Dalton Stutzman, UT - Utah Freestyle State Champ

Commentary: This is a pretty stacked weight. Lane has already won a Greco title this week and will be looking to double up. Varano and Holmes had a battle in Greco so you know Holmes will have a little extra fire. Throw returning double Fargo champ Mosha Schwartz into the mix will certainly make things even more interesting along with Foley, Phippen and Kaylor. I'm going with Lane to double up.

Willie's Picks:  1. Lane   2. Foley   3. Holmes   4. Kaylor
Holmes' Picks: 1. Lane  2. Schwartz  3. Holmes  4. Foley
CP's Picks: 1. Holmes 2. Lane 3. Schwartz 4. Varona

Nic Aguilar, CA - 2015 UWW Cadet Freestyle Runner-up
Tomas Gutierrez, CO
Rhett Golowenski, OK - UWW Freestyle 3rd
Mike Madara, PA
Dom La Joie, MI
Joey Thomas, MD

Commentary: D'Emilio will be in the hunt for his second straight title after winning the Cadet title a season ago. We will most likely get a match between Biscoglia and D'Emilio, these guys have met so many times in the past. Joey Melendez is one tough opponent but D'Emilio already owns a win over him from Jr. Duals. The guy to watch out for is going to be Michael Colaiocco. I feel like he can have a very good showing here.

Willie's Picks: 1. Melendez   2. Yapoujian   3. D' Emilio   4. Colaiocco
Holmes' Picks: 1. D'Emilio  2. Aguilar  3. Colaiocco  4. Melendez
CP's Picks: 1. D'Emilio 2. Yapoujian 3. Biscoglia 4. McKee

Colin Valdiviez, MO
Jonathon Gomez, NY
Korbin Meink, NE
Liam Cronin, CA
Trae Vasquez, MT

Commentary: This is by far the most exciting weight of the tournament. I hope you got your popcorn ready because Gavin Teasdale is going to put on a show. He is the clear cut favorite to win this weight. Danny Vega will be the one looking to take out Teasdale in the finals. However, last year's finalists Courtney and Mattin will not just go quietly. Like I said, this weight is going to be something to see for sure.

Willie's Picks:  1. Teasdale   2. Mattin   3. Vega   4. Wagner
Holmes' Picks: 1. Teasdale  2. Vega  3. Mattin  4. Courtney

Weston Diblasi, MO - Freestyle State Champ
Dan Moran, PA - NE Regional 4th
Jackson Henson, WV
Jakob Campbell, PA
Peter Del Gallo, ME

Commentary: Can Austin Gomez return to the top of the Fargo podium? He can and he will. It's tough to pick against him. My darkhorse here is Billy Simpson. The returning Cadet runner-up is pretty tough and I think he could shake some things up. Thomsen will look to bounce back from his greco loss and Konrath will be in the mix as the tough competitor he always is.

Willie's Picks: 1. Gomez   2. Thomsen   3. Schmitt   4. Sherman
Holmes' Picks: 1. Gomez  2. Konrath  3. Thomsen  4. Sherman
CP's Picks: 1. Gomez 2. Thomsen 3. Sherman 4. Konrath

Taylor LaMont, UT - Returning Champ
#5 (at 126)-Max Murin, PA - UWW Freestyle National 3rd

Tanner Cox, UT - Freestyle State Champ
Wyatt Long, PA - NE Regional Champ
Brent Jones, MN - Greco 5th
Brock Rathbun, IA - Northern Plains Regional Freestyle Champ
Giovanni Ghione, NJ
KJ Fenstermacher, PA

Commentary: Not sure that anyone in the field has what it takes to really test Taylor LaMont, but this weight will be fun to watch for sure. Last year Townsell won the Greco title then couldn't follow through in freestyle, well this year he's got a second chance a bit more motivation after coming up short in this year's Greco finals. Timmy Kane is extremely tough and I feel like he is going to make some noise here. I won't be surprised if he knocks off a stud or two this weekend.

Willie's Picks: 1. LaMont   2. Sandoval   3. Parker   4. Murin
Holmes' Picks: 1. LaMont  2. Murin 3. Park  4. Kane
CP's Picks: 1. LaMont 2. Murin 3. Parker 4. Rathbun

#9-Ben Freeman, MI - UWW Freestyle Runner-up
#10 (at 145)-Riley Palmer, PA

Jaden Enriquez, CA - Greco AA
Will Kaldes, PA - NE Regional 4th
Alex Crowe, MN - Greco 5th
Calvin Germinaro, MN - UWW Greco Runner-up
Nate Keim, OK

Commentary: This is probably my second favorite weight of the tournament after 120, but it's a really close call. Mckee and Gfeller wrestled at Junior Duals and it was amazing. McKee had a houdini-like four-pointer that still has people saying "wtf." Surely McKee is the favorite, but it's going to be like navigating through a minefield to win it. Like I said Gfeller is looking to get back to the top of the podium for the first time since 2013 and he's showed some more pop as of late. I know I don't have Carter Happel in my top 4, but trust me, him proving me wrong is not something I'll be surprised with. Hernandez has been on the Fargo stage a few times but has yet to get the stop sign he wants. And then there's Nick Lee. We know he can battle with the best of 'em. Like I said, this bracket is like a minefield. At any moment something big can happen. And oh yeah, the Kanen Storr farewell tour has not come to a close just yet. We have seen Storr all over the place since the regular season ended. He's just a competitor. If he gets into a rhythm, things will not be good for people.

Willie's Picks:  1. McKee   2. Lee   3. Gfeller   4. Storr
Holmes' Picks: 1. McKee  2. Storr  3. Gfeller  4. Yates
CP's Picks: 1. Gfeller 2. McKee 3. Lee 4. Yates
Bratke's Picks: 1. McKee  2. Storr  3. Gfeller  4. Lee

Vincent Dolce, AZ - Fargo Greco 7th
Anthony Cheloni, IL - Freestyle State 3rd
Jaron Jensen, UT - Greco Runner-up
Charlie Kane, CT
Jon Errico, NY

Commentary: Big group of talent with returning champ Anthony Artalona having thte advantage. However, it's just a slight edge in my mind. There are plenty of contenders here looking to make a big splash. Though Artalona is the favorite, it's still a bit of a toss up as to how things will shake out.

Holmes' Picks
: 1. Verkleeren  2. Artalona 3. Deakin  4. Lloyd
Willie's Picks:  1. Artalona   2. Lloyd   3. Verkleeren   4. Deakin

#6-Joe Lee, IN - Returning Champ

Wyatt Sheets, OK - UWW Freestyle National 3rd
Andrew Cervantez, CA - Greco AA
Austin Hiles, OH - Central Regional Freestyle 3rd
Nico O'Dor, OH
Jimmy Noel, AR
Kyler Rea, MO

Commentary: Very interesting field here. With the returning champ Joe Lee back in the mix and Zander Wick here as well, I'm thinking that things could heat up quickly. Wick and Lee aren't the only guys here that can (and probably will) do some serious damage. Parriott is riding high after winning the Greco title, and Hovis is in need of a serious rebound after taking an early round loss in Greco. The pair of Oklahoma boys--Curry and Sheets--should be in the mix, but for me are kind of hit or miss. Both guys didn't have the best showings at Junior Duals so I'm interested to see how they pan out this weekend. But I still expect good things from them both.

Willie's Picks:  1. Parriott   2. Hovis   3. Lee   4. Sheets
Holmes' Picks: 1. Lee  2. Parriott  3. Wick  4. Hovis
CP's Picks: 1. Parriott 2. Lee 3. Wick 4. Hovis
Bratke's Picks: 1. Parriott  2. Lee  3. Wick  4. Hovis

Colton Clingenpeel, IA - Greco 4th
Jose Acosta, WI - UWW Cadet Greco Runner-up
Matt McDowell, OR - Freestyle State 3rd
Ryder Punke, IL - Greco State Runner-up
Luke Weber, MT

Commentary: Anthony Mantanona is the guy to beat here. He has such an unorthodox style couple with awesome athleticism. The way I see it, it's going to be an all California final with Wick and Mantanona. Hopefully Mantanona isn't bothered by whatever had him taking injury time in his Greco final too. Van Anrroy and Bolen are serious competitors as well. I like Bolen a lot so I wouldn't be surprised if he pulled an upset.

Willie's Picks:  1. Mantanona   2. Van Anrooy   3. Wick   4. Bolen
Holmes' Picks: 1. Mantanona  2. Wick  3. Bolen  4. Van Anrooy
CP's Picks:  1. Mantanona 2. Wick 3. Allar 4. Hidlay

Christian Bahl, OK
Fritz Schierl, WI
Johnny Blankenship, MO - 2014 Cadet Runner-Up
Riley Jarimillo, OR
Ty Bagoly, PA

Commentary: I really like Jessen here. He made the Cadet finals last year in both styles and I don't see why he can't get back there again. If Jeske comes out firing like he did at Junior Duals then he's going to be trouble for everyone. He loves putting points up and doesn't mind giving them up at all so keep an eye on Jeske, he's fun to watch. And finally there's Marcus Coleman. He was a runner-up in Cadets last year and has made a lot of improvements to his game.

Willie's Picks:  1. Jessen   2. Coleman   3. Hemauer   4. Jeske
Holmes' Picks: 1. Jessen  2. Jeske  3. Coleman  4. Marcelli
CP's Picks: 1. Jessen 2. Coleman 3. Jeske 4. Marcelli

Roman Romero, CA
Taylor Venz, MN
Tyler Stepic, OH
Christian Dietrich, PA
Aaron Paddock, NY
Bob Coleman, OR

Commentary: Some big guns in this weight class. I really like the Minnesota guys here. Owen Webster and Keegan Moore are some tough guys and you can't forget about Taylor Venz. I guess you can say that Minnesota has some serious firepower here. Greco Champ Logan Gruszka looked great and will be looking to continue his run in freestyle. The guy I'm really anxious to see is Roman Romero. I want to see what he can bring against some really tough competition.

Willie's Picks:  1. Woodley   2. Moore   3. Falbo   4. Embree
Holmes' Picks: 1. Webster  2. Moore  3. Lyon 4. Embree
CP's Picks: 1. Webster 2. Moore 3. Lyon 4. Embree

#2-Patrick Brucki, IL

#12-John Borst, VA - UWW Cadet 8th
#14-Danny Salas, CA - 2015 Fargo Cadet 7th
Sean O'Malley, NJ
Trenton Schultz, CO
Benjamin Darmstadt, OH - Returning 4th

Commentary: Last year Ben Askren let us all have it when Jacob Raschka was overlooked and came out with the title. Well this year I'm not overlooking him at all. However, I don't know if I can pick him to win it. The guy that will be at the top when it's all said and done is Ben Darmstadt. He is a problem. I can see him taking out everyone in his path. He was nothing short of impressive at Junior Duals and if he brings the same game plan it's going to be tough to keep up with.

Holmes' Picks: 1. Darmstadt  2. Borst  3. Raschka  4. Whitman
Willie's Picks:  1. Darmstadt   2. Brucki   3. Kui   4. Whitman
CP's Picks: 1. Darmstadt 2. Borst 3. Raschka 4. Davidson

Max Darrah, MO
Sammy Colbray, OR - Returning Junior Runner-Up
Wyatt Wriedt, IA - 2015 Cadet 4th
Zane Black, PA

Commentary: Sorry Jared Campbell, Gable didn't make the trip, but Sammy Colbray did and he is a bruiser. Colbray dropped huge bombs in the Greco finals and is the top dog here for sure. I also like Wyatt Wriedt to have a favorable finish as well.

Willie's Picks: Campbell   2. Colbray   3. Wriedt   4. Piscopo
Holmes' Picks: 1. Colbray  2. Aiello  3. Wriedt  4. Campbell
CP's Picks: 1. Campbell  2. Colbray  3. Piscopo  4. Wriedt

Tommy Killoran, PA
Tommy Helton, IL - Returning Junior 7th
Trenton Lieurance, OK
Zach Muller, IL  - 2015 Cadet Runner-Up

Commentary: This weight is ruled by the big bad Iowa boys. Isley, Gremmel and Anderson are the frontrunners here. Whoever comes out of that mess to take the title will be a seriously battle test stud.

Willie's Picks:  1. Cassioppi   2. Isley   3. Gremmel   4. Andersen
Holmes' Picks: 1. Isley  2. Anderson  3. Gremmel  4. Nye
