The first half of Seth Shumate's high school career has been incredible. His dynamic, varied range of attacks helped him win an Ohio Division I state title as a freshman. While he didn't have the chance to compete for a second title last year due to the COVID-19 cancelation, he won the more impressive Iron Man, even notching a win over Nick Feldman who is currently ranked #1 at 220.

If you aren't familiar with Shumate's power and athleticism, do yourself a favor and check out this Feldman final where Shumate's skill and never-say-die approach were on display.

While Shumate's #1 ranking makes him the favorite, he has a game challenger in Tate Picklo, a guy who's new to 195 but no stranger to elite competition. Last season he won titles at Geary and the KC Stampede, and last summer he was a double All-American at Fargo.

Picklo is a big man who can scramble and score from his opponents' attacks making him very dangerous. For a small sample of Picklo's skill, have a look at his 3rd place match against #11 Gavin Nelson of Minnesota.
