I did not see any members of WWE Raw last night, but I did see some good high school wrestling at the OHSAA State Wrestling tournament. Even better, I saw some good football players be aggressive. All 4 1/2 hours.
Pretty much all I look for is a football player’s physical size, movement, and aggressiveness on the mat. Actually, I also look for how he handles winning and losing.
Also, I apologize for missing any football players below the 170 pound weight class.
Sam Stoll – Milan Edison – RB – 2018. #195. Tough inside runner. Got stronger as the game went on last fall.

There were a few more underclassmen football players with potential, but too early to put their names out there.
Really enjoyed watching some seniors who are going to playing on the next level next fall. But time was limited.
Good time- 4 and 1/2 hours – same seat – food was too expensive to eat – but enjoyed myself – fans do get a little crazy.
