    With names like NCAA champion Darian Cruz and 2x All-American Scotty Parker Lehigh University has been a destination for some of PA’s best young lightweight prospects. If Ryan Crookham can stay relatively healthy over the course of his NCAA career, he has a great chance of carrying the lightweight Mountain Hawk torch.

    While most weight classes have a lot of familiar faces due to the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA, there was a mass exodus at 141 lbs after the 2021-2022 season. 1-5 in FloWrestling’s final season ranking all graduated and moved on.

    Thoughts From Behind The Mic: 2022 PIAA Championships

    Mar 17, 2022

    After 2021 we shouldn’t take normal day-to-day living for granted. It was great to be back in the Giant Center for a three-day tournament. The social aspect of the three-day reunion of former coaches, teammates, rivals, and friends was lost last year as the competitors were shuffled in and out of the Giant Center as quickly as possible to prevent mass interaction. It is what makes Pennsylvania wrestling so special. So many former competitors giving back to the sport. You can often find college level coaching staffs sitting in the corner at the PIAA State Championships. It's a special three days, and I was grateful it was back to normal. In this article I’m going to share a few stats and some thoughts I had as I sat behind the microphone matside in Hershey.

    The Ultimate Escape The Rock Preview

    Jan 16, 2020

    I always love Escape The Rock, coming just after the holiday tournaments have shaken up the rankings, it allows the new stars to continue to burn bright, and others to seek equal parts redemption and revenge. This year features a barrage of talent, with a stack of nationally ranked wrestlers colliding with the local heroes. All of it highlighted by the never-ending Pennsylvania / New Jersey border war. We even dialed up a little snow to get everyone in that January tournament mood! Luckily, if you can’t join us matside you can take in every second of the action in the cozy comfort of your own home.
