    Arizona State and Stanford have headlined the Pac-12 conference in recent years, competing for control of the West while trying to add to their winning culture. However, neither team can claim the most thriving combination of wrestling culture and history in the conference. That honor would go to the 111-year-old Oregon State program, which tops as the winningest squad on the West Coast. The Beavers' success started in 1909, and since then, they have racked up a total of 23 Pac-12 titles, as well as two national runner-up finishes.

    Are You Shooting High Crotches Or Head-Outside-Singles?

    Mar 29, 2020

    I like to make a distinction between a high crotch and a head-outside-single. One thing that you should probably understand is that this is less of a rule and more of a coaching preference. I started making the distinction when I was teaching kids in order to separate the ideas in my athletes' heads. If you have any insight into how you teach the difference between these two specific techniques, please get a hold of me. I'd love to hear it.
