Hey guys, let's have some fun. CIF divisional and CIF Masters are coming up. Let's see our choices and picks and dark horses that could sneak up. Who are the wrestlers that will surprise people or some great matches. This could be a fun thread if we all play. Who are our shining stars and dream match ups?
I'll start.
I am looking forward to Gandara Poway vs Badgett Rancho Bernardo. I pick Gandara

Jovero (RB) has been looking very good and beat the Poway kid. Curtis (LCC) was ranked higher in the last state rankings I saw. Looking forward to see how 184 shakes out. Curtis v Jovero could be a good one with both having good shot at state medal.

Abas in OT? Ramsthaller an underrated wrestler who I think will medal at State, but you're talking about unquestionably one of the best wrestlers ever in San Diego Section (IMO the best). Ok, we'll see.

I saw this here years ago. I loved it because it states how a lot of dad think of their sons and wrestling. With CIF, Masters, and State coming up, i thought this is fitting. I hope you all enjoy.

Last Chances

I worry that you are doing battle while unprepared and that I have failed in your preparation. As a father that is my greatest fear, that you are unprepared to face the challenges that will come before you. I want you to be prepared for your match, but I’ve come to realize that it is the matches themselves that, are in the long run, win or lose, the things that ARE preparing you.

I think that the greatest benefit from wrestling is learning to face challenges and to demand the most from yourself. You learn to fight when you think there is no more fight left within you. You learn to get up after you’ve fallen, time and time again. You learn about sacrifice and about pain. You learn to endure and to overcome. This is what I want for you, not because I wrestled, but because these lessons are the true gifts of this sport. So, those losses today were actually part of this gift, and an important part of the journey.

My dream for you is to not just win championships and fill your room with medals. My dream for you is much greater and I hope you get much more from wrestling. I hope you learn to strive for greatness even if you fail in the attempt. I hope you learn to get up one more time when you think you can’t get up any longer. I hope you learn to not only face your fears, but to stare them down.

Wrestling isn’t about winning. It is about the desire to win. It isn’t about success, but rather the determination to succeed. I want you to succeed as a wrestler, not to win state championships, but I want you to be a successful wrestler so you learn to be all that you can. This sport can help teach you that, if you let it. I look forward to the seasons of our future as you go through these lessons and I’ll be in your corner for each and every one of them. I love you.

Not sure what happened. Heard stories and rumors but can't say if I don't know the facts. But I would like to know if anyone's knows where we could see brackets. Some of the other sections already have them out posted. Also...any dark horses or predictions? This should be a fun tournament. See you all there.

Blanchard has been out with an injury since the SP tournament. Heard the other guys did not weigh in for various reasons. Could be skin issues, tardiness, or a hundred other reasons. Happens every year.

Tardiness can be prevented by setting the alarm early or having the coach, parent, relative, friend, etc. drop off early. Understandable for an inexperienced underclassman. Doesn't bode well for a state-ranked senior.
