2012-2013 NC State Wrestling Thread 5/6 Awards Dinner

2012-2013 NC State Wrestling Thread 5/6 Awards Dinner 


Don't have complete results yet but my understanding is that NC State had one wrestler place at today's Hokie Open tournament in Blacksburg. Sophomore Nick Gwiazdowski placed first at heavyweight. The good news? This guy was an All-American last year as a Freshman at Binghamton and is now here wrestling for the Wolfpack. The bad news? My understanding is that they plan to redshirt him this year. This will be the first season under the new coaching staff and it will take some patience to get a foundation built here in Raleigh. The culture is definitely changing, however, and the coming years should see NC State once again competing for ACC Championships.

So does any one know what happened to Coltin Fought?  He isn't listed on the roster now.  He was the best wrestler last year, don't tell me he's transferred out after one year, like so many of the other best wrestlers in the last 5-10 years.  If he's really gone, does anyone know why?  We were hoping that it was a Carter Jordan thing, that the good wrestlers knew they didn't have to put up with his garbage and so took off, but now Jordan, thankfully, is gone, so why the departure?

He did transfer (like so many before him). Not sure where, though. He'll be back in Raleigh next weekend wrestling in the Wolfpack Open for his new team. Sad to see so many kids transfer. That should come to a stop now.

The new coach has an "absolutely no nonsense" type of approach. That caused a few kids to transfer. That doesn't mean he is too much or the kids don't like discipline, just that they felt like it was better to move on. There is a completely different regime in the Wolfpack Wrestling room than there has ever been. I think it will be for the best.

to change the results, first you have to change the culture...sounds like we will be abysmal this year, but hopefully this guy will lay a foundation...

It will be interesting to see how recruiting goes under the new coaching staff also. Information regarding his first real class should be coming out by the end of the month. The kids he brought in this year should pay big dividends down the road, but we will struggle this year. No more struggling than in Coach Jordan's last couple of seasons, except that there is a lot of hope for the future now.

No one on the wrestling team was happy about their coach being fired and all of them were talking about transferring.

No. He's still here. I'm hoping that he can begin to reach some of his potential under this new staff.

he NC State wrestling team will be at home this weekend, hosting the NC State Wolfpack Open on Sunday, Nov. 11, at Reynolds Coliseum. Matches will begin at 9 a.m.

The Wolfpack Open should feature most of the top college wrestling programs in the Southeast, with perhaps as many as 250-300 wrestlers competing in the 10 weight classifications

RE: 2012-2013 NC State Wrestling Thread 


Since the Wolfpack Open is tomorrow, below is a look at our participants. Now, a word of caution is in order. Fans will have to be patient with this team this season. To say they are young would be an enormous understatement. They are incredibly young. But there is buzz building for the program because we have some real talent currently on the roster (some of which will be redshirting). This program could arguably be contending for ACC Championships within two years, though. Wolfpack wrestlers competing at tomorrow's tournament:

- 133 lbs.- Patrick Hutton; A Freshman that had a 152-40 high school record
- 141 lbs.- Tyler Hunt; A Freshman that had a 145-20 high school record
- 141 lbs.- Michael Avelar; A redshirt Freshman that was a top 15 national recruit in his weight with a 112-20 high school record
- 149 lbs.- Thomas Gantt; A Sophomore that placed second in the Illinois state finals as a high school senior and finished with a high school record of 121-20.
- 149 lbs.- Gabe Levay; A Freshman that placed third in the Virginia state finals in high school
- 157 lbs.- Mardel Gabriel; A redshirt Freshman that was a Florida state champion in high school
- 165 lbs.- Ryan Fox; A Sophomore that was ranked 3rd in the nation as a JUCO wrestler last year and was a high school All-American
- 165 lbs.- Nigel Jones; A Junior that was 7-20 as a Freshman but won 21 matches last year.
-174 lbs.- Patrick Davis; A Freshman that was ranked 4th in the nation in high school and won 2 Delaware state championships
-184 lbs.- Brett Peltier ; A redshirt Freshman that was 65-20 in high school in Rhode Island
-197 lbs.- Josh Lackey; A Freshman that won the New York state championship in high school with a 40-1 record last year.
-HWT - Nick Gwiazdowski; A Sophomore that was a Division 1 college All-American as a Freshman last year at Binghamton; Redshirting this year so won’t compete in attached competition but was the number 1 ranked heavyweight recruit in the nation coming out of high school.
-HWT - Mike Kosoy; A Freshman that placed second in the Florida state championships in high school last yar.
-HWT - Josh Davis; A Sophomore that had a 112-24 record in high school and won 11 matches as a Freshman last season.

I'll have results from today's tournament later, but one thing I can tell you is that, starting next year, NC State will have the heavyweight division on lock. I'm not one to overly play up our athletes but Nick Gwiazdowski is a phenom on the wrestling mat. Just like last week at the Hokie Open is absolutely blowing everyone out at the Wolfpack Open. That's an outstanding sign for the future.

Gwiazdowski placed first, Nigel Jones placed second and Mardel Gabriel placed fourth. Overall, not a bad day and lots of young guys got some valuable experience. The bad news is that our most talented wrestler can't compete this year and our arch rival looks to possibly be the best team in the ACC. The good news is that those days are numbered. A strong program is being built in Raleigh. Will take a little while, though.

Wow, are you saying that UNC is maybe the best team?  I haven't been following it much this year, but usually it's MD, VT and UVA dominating, with UNC, State and Duke trailing dismally behind.  Have the other big 3 slipped that much, or is UNC making a significant rise this year?

Yeah, just total speculation on my part due to being impressed by a few of UNC's wrestlers early on. Heading into the season I would have possibly picked Virginia Tech. Who knows, though? We'll see how the season plays out. I can definitely see why Yow was impressed by our new coach. He will build something impressive.

Hiring Debbie may well be remembered many years from now as one of the better decisions NC State ever made. I have no idea what results will be in certain sports but I have faith that the right person is in charge.

The person conducting the interview sounds like he is either really nervous or struggling to speak.
