The Gut Check got a whole lot tougher this year with the addition of Blair Academy. With 11 wrestlers ranked currently, including P4P #11 Shayne Van Ness, Blair is one of the top high school teams in the country. 

Watch The Gut Check LIVE on Flo

January 3-4 | 8:00 AM ET

In its six previous years, The Gut Check has been one of the top high school tournaments in the nation. 80 teams from all over the western timezone and even Canada come to compete. 

From its humble beginnings as a one-day tournament with 16-man brackets to its current incarnation that will feature 64-man brackets wrestled over two days, the Gut Check continues to grow by leaps and bounds. The brackets are getting deeper, too. The addition of a powerhouse like Blair will make any tournament elite; now throw in three of the five Washington state team group champions from last season, plus over a dozen other state-placing teams, and a mix Northwest high school powers nearby states, and you've got one of the premier events of the season. 

Some of the best action from last year's Gut Check includes the 106-pound final between Fargo All-Americans Oscar Alvarez and Horacio Godinez came down to an OT takedown.

The current #1 wrestler in the country at 220 lbs, #11 on the Class of 2022 Big Board — although I expect that to improve when David Bray updates the ranking — and the #14 P4P high schooler, Nick Feldman, is a National Prep champion out of powerhouse PA high school Malvern Prep. The Friars finished in third at both Ironman and National Preps behind historic programs in Blair and Wyoming Seminary.
