The best three-week leg anywhere in the sport continues this weekend with regional tournaments taking place across the state.
To help you celebrate, I’ll preview all 12 regional tournaments, try to predict all 672 state qualifiers, and secure my bets by appointing 336 other potential Kissimmee entrants.
I expect this post-season will be as wild as the season, and I can’t wait to see everyone who does the state tournament.
If you are interested in how I choose, here is a brief summary:
I will print a bracket for each area and divide each weight class and predict each match.
Updated individual ratings of Class 1A wrestlers in the state of Florida.
I use my official Orlando Sentinel leaderboards to check past meetings and common opponents and how each has progressed.
Then I ask myself – and then I ask myself – and then I make my final choice.
What you read is my best guess at how each region will play.
I’ll be wrong – and I’m fine. In fact, I like when kids get up and prove me wrong.
But there is nothing wrong with proving me right.
Good luck to everyone competing this weekend, here’s a little example of how it could play.
