    Future Wrestlers

    Now that the state tournament has passed, who do you think will have the biggest impact on Cyclone wrestling in the next couple of years?
    I don't know a lot of the commits, but I know Weatherman is one of them.

    Kyven Gadson - East High waterloo

    I have watched this kid wrestle since he was a young lad. He has alot of promise, great wrestling skills and an even better off the mat attitude. His dad is Willie Gadson, all american for us in the 70's. Im not for sure if were recruiting him but I think he would be a great fit for us in the upper weights down the road.

    Re: Future Wrestlers

    David Taylor from Ohio is ranked second nationally at 135

    An experienced wrestler, Taylor was a Junior National freestyle champion in 2007. He was a U.S. Junior World Team member in 2007. The future Cyclone won three Cadet national championships, twice in freestyle and once in Greco.
    I would say him and Weatherman look to be the best coming in next year. Younger guys from the state Evan Knight and Gadson as mentioned above. Maybe we should recruit Michael Moreno if we aren't already.

    Re: Future Wrestlers

    It would be nice to create a Weatherman-ISU connection as he has a couple younger brothers who seem to be pretty good grapplers, at least thats what I've heard.

    Re: Future Wrestlers

    I'm out here in Virginia Beach which is connected to Norfolk, Virginia. How did ISU let the older and younger brother out of Des Moines come out here to Old Dominion University? ODU has a good wrestling team but nowhere close to ISU.

    That was Roosevelt's 160-lb guy...Nicholson. Going to Old Dominion, where his older brother is currently wrestling.

    because he isnt a national champ type talent. I watched him wrestle this weekend, and he is D-I for sure, but he is no blue-chipper.

    Eric Thompson.

    I know he is already on the team and was redshirted this year but he was a monster for Waverly-Shell Rock last year. I can't wait to see him wrestle for the clones.

    Re: Future Wrestlers

    If you go to youtube and type in Luke Macchiaroli wrestling I think there are a couple of matches posted of his third state championship he just won. He just destroyed the field in Arizona this year. I believe he will be attending Virgina Beach at the end of the month. I see him as a potential national champ over the next couple of years.

    I believe the Weathermans are two brothers and a cousin. But would agree that the family has some serious wrestlers that did very well at state meet.

    No to mention I think there are other members of that B-H team that are probably high D1 talent also.

    Also, has Waverly-Shell Rock always been pretty good at wrestling, or is that a new thing? They sure seem to be doing well lately.

    Re: Future Wrestlers

    Nope, WSR stuggled before Rick Caldwell came in. He has a great history prior to WSR but I can find any details. I know he coached at Ames high and I think Clarinda or Clinton. Here's a good link that talks about how good of a team he has created (4th in the Nation in 2008). Waverly dominates Montini | January 6, 2008 on Flowrestling

    Mind you that was last year and he LOST 10 seniors and this year he comes back and repeats as the 3A state champion over a top 30 team in the nation (Iowa City West)

    He knows how to develop a program from the little kids up. He's really one he!! of a coach.


    You can have it Fast, Cheap, Reliable.....Please pick TWO!

    That is what I was wondering. I have friends who just moved there and their kids are in peewee wrestling or whatever it is called, and they are having a blast! Pretty cool they could repeat with losing that much talent.
