106 state ranking?

21 comments

Why isn’t Jake Defonce ranked above O’Dell? He beat him from what I saw, correct? Unless the scores were not put in correctly.

Ohh snap! Rapuano just beat gods gift to wrestling! So according to the O’Dell theory he must now be ranked best in the universe!!!!!!!!!!!!! All hail Rapuano! Rapuano for president! Or does that not count because he’s not Danbury?..................hmmmmmmmmmmm don’t worry they will just duck him from now on anyways!

Anyone know or see that match to see if it was a error?

Defonce did beat O'dell 5-3 at the Plainville Tournament at the start of the season. Although Defonce wrestles for Abott, he practices and trains with Danbury High school and has trained with O'dell for a number of years. Defonce has the head to head win, and o'dell has placed higher then him in both the Danbury holiday and SWAT Maine tournament.

Ok, to me head to head and winning is a much better indicator of rankings and who’s the tougher wrestler. Wrestling partner at practice or not he still won in a head to head live match. Anyone who knows wrestling jimmy may beat Timmy , and Timmy may beat Billy, but that doesn’t mean Jimmy is going to beat Billy. In my opinion head to head is a true way to look at ranking. So with O’Dell finishing in a tournament higher than defonce to me only means that he got put on the easier side of the bracket and Jake had to wrestle the champion before O’Dell had to. Understand what I’m saying?

I get what your saying for H2H and rankings, but i don't think it indicates who is a "tougher" wrestler by any means. if the two wrestle 10 times, it would go 5/5 in my opinion. 106 is has a ton of mixed results and a few potential upcoming matches soon to come. As of now i see Rapuano as the clear #1.

 

Thompson beat Longo/Lidner

Odell beat Thompson

Defonce beat O'dell

Lidner beat Defonce

Hamilton out of BC is pretty good, he got a good win over Duran from Ledyard but lost to O'dell and Lidner.

 

Potential Longo vs. Thompson match this weekend

Longo vs. O'dell next weekend, but i wont be surprised if Shook wrestles Pina against Trumbull

Longo vs. Defonce the same day as the Danbury match. (i think Longo beats Defonce handily)

Brault is at the Berlin tourney, we haven't seen him wrestle any competition yet and I'm not sure of match ups for this weekend but it it would be nice to see where he is at

 

106 is very young and has a bunch of kids who have spent their entire lives wrestling one another and training together. results are going to vary throughout the year.

@Run.the.Pipes Brault is wrestling Marselli from East Cathlic at Berlin

@bbrock123 I think Brault is just too strong for Marselli. Marselli is the more technical of the two by far , but Brault is freakishly strong.

Yes I agree with you . Longo, and Lindner have a long history, as do O’Dell and Longo as practice partners with Hamilton as well at Beast. Defonce has wrestled all of them many times usually falling short of the win at least against Longo and Lindner. In my opinion the only reason O’Dell and Longo’s matches were somewhat close is because they were practice partners but from what I’m aware of he has yet to defeat Longo. I guess that’s the same with Defonce and O’Dell being practice partners. I saw that Thompson and Longo have 2 match ups coming up in the next few weeks ( colter abbey and ct challenge) so we will see what happens there , but I would bet the outcome may be different than the last match now that Mike knows what to expect. It’s always tough being a freshman wrestling juniors and seniors who you’ve never seen before. Earthed way we are getting into the heart of the gauntlet and we will see who rises to the occasion and who drops down. Some of these kids feed off of the pressure while some can’t handle it and drop down.

Dan Charron was at 106 today at GHO. Should most likely move to #1 in state rankings

I noticed you moved Dan Charron to #3. Just wondering why not higher? He beat Rappuano 14-5 at opens last year and beat Breault 8-3 at M's

Lots of people beat rapuano last year but apparently he is a much better wrestler this year. Just because Charon drops a weight doesn’t mean he is number 1 haha. I’m seriously laughing at this! He is a good wrestler but relax let him wrestle some kids and show how he fits into this class. I think moving him to 3 is a premature move in my very humble opinion.

@sweep the leg! Rapuano did get a lot better and bigger. he was only a 100 pound freshman last year.

@justafan that’s what I thought. It seems to happen to a good amount of young kids just coming in to HS. These lower weight classes are really going to be exciting to watch over the next few weeks. I really like the competition in the 120lb class also!

He's been 106 his whole career. Last year 3rd at opens and 5th at new englands, I think he's beaten a few good guys. Including both ahead of him.
