It seems like the wrestling in these two states has become more dominant than anywhere else. Any thoughts on why? Do you think it is superior elsewhere?

feeder schools. they start most of the kids when they are very young. I think that there are a few other states that can hang with these. But some may be restricted to compete. For instince Florida, may be just as tough, but they can not compete at tournaments like the iron man and the beast of the east due to FHSA rules.

Numbers of wrestlers participating etc.. help as well as tradition. I think the Midwest does pretty well also IMO.

MN, IL, IA, WI and MI and OK, produce some pretty good teams and guys as well.

It's not their "feeder" development program, it's their "fetal" development program. They start training kids for the mat while still in the uterus. By the time theyare born, they already have 9 months of experience in the sport. In most hospitals across Ohio, Saturday is "Nursery Tournament Day".  They use the following weight groups:

-  4.5 - 5.4 pounds
-  5.5 - 6.4 pounds
-  6.5 - 7.4 pounds
-  7.5 - 8.4 pounds
-  8.5 - 9.4 pounds
-  9.5 - 10.4 pounds
