275 - Roby Shaw and Nick Berry are top dogs. Healy and Byl will need to wrestle their best.

 

Possible CWAC State Champions

103 - Thompson, DeLeon or Ashley. Any of the three could win the title.
112 - Lorenzo Longoria lost 10-6 to champ John Bennett at Newport Tourney. Edgar Mendez could surprise.
119 - Dago Velasquez - Injury?
145 - Josh Corke. Toughest pre final opponent could be Chris Long in quarters
152 - Mason Massey. Starts off the tournament wrestling a guy with the longest name I have ever seen! Leg ride could dominate.
160 - Juventino Orozco has been chasing the dream for awhile. This could be the year.
171 - Josh Corriell has been chasing his dream as long as Juventino.
