New York also has, if I recall correctly, a 99-pound weight class, or a mini-mini-me weight class.

Yeah, Dake picked up 5 state titles in "High School".
I believe you have him confused with Nicholson.

I think you are right. My bad. Just checked and saw Dake had 2 HS titles.

You mean Nickerson.....

No I mean Jack Nicholson...the actor.. was a 5 time state champ. You can trust me on this.

Bunch of snowflakes run this board, sad how the mods cater to people that support one political party.

Not sure what the lower classes are now but up until at least 2007 (when my son graduated), NY had 96 and 103 as the two lowest weights.

Nicholson was a lot things growing up in Jersey, but a wrestler was not one of them. 

Little known fact, he and Danny DeVito grew up childhood best buddies.  Their parents owned a business together.  He didn't wrestle either.

I find that hard to believe. Nicholson is 7 years older than Devito....what kids hang out with kids 7 years younger than they are?

They grew up in close proximity and knew several of the same people is what I've always heard, not that they were close friends whose families were business associates. That being said I believe they are good friends today and have been since "Cuckoo's Nest".

Wasn't it DeVito and Bruce Springsteen who were buddies growing up?

Minnesota allows 7th-12th, Mark Hall won his first state title there when he repeated 8th grade (after losing in the Kentucky state finals)

I'm pretty sure Mark Hall repeated the 7th grade. I'm pretty sure he was a Kentucky state runner-up as a 7th grader, then went to AV and won a state title as a 7th grader the next year going on to win titles 5 straight years and could (Will)  become MN's first 6X State Champ this year.

Kentucky allows 7th and up, I think North Dakota does too because wasn't Storley a 6 timer?

Storley was a 6X state champ from Webster, South Dakota. SD and ND both allow 7th/8th graders on varsity. Jordan Shearer was the first ever 6X ND State Champion last year for West Fargo, ND.

Yes you're right on Mark Hall being a runner up as a 7th grader not an 8th grader, weird that I would mess that up considering I remember watching him. Fun fact, the guy who beat me to go to state that year had Mark Hall in the first round. So if I hadn't decided to stop wrestling after getting my face busted open I would've wrestled Mark Hall haha

Gay lovers. It's a big Hollywood secret (don't tell anybody!).

Seven years of HS wrestling eligibility?  Something is wrong with that picture.
