Mass Wrestlers,

I would like to share some thoughts and insights I have on massachusetts wrestlers wrestling in the collegiate level, especially D1. I am now just completing my first season (redshirt) at Duke, and have some thoughts. First off, what you hear is true, the rest of the country is better on average than MA/New England. I continually get beaten by kids who didn't even place top three in states such as New Jersey, PA, and so on. But this isn't to say that we, as Mass wrestlers, can't compete with them. We very well can. My mass background didn't stop me from going 3-2 at senior nationals, Sobhan from doing the same, or Morricone from nearly placing. WE CAN COMPETE. However, to do this and to go to the next level, we need to take chances.

I plead with you, whether you were pinned in the state finals, or pinned your way through the state-finals, go to Nationals. It was an incredible experience for me going there, humbling, but incredible. You get exposed to so much outside of your own little microcosm. And it is truly a good test to see how you stack up, for those who were not challenged thus far. You get exposed to so much technique, and gain invaluable experience.

Also, going to nationals will help get your name out there for recruiting. I had applied to Duke before I went out there, and had emailed the coach, but had not received any word back from him. However, when I sought him out at nationals, and told him of my results, it was not long after that I got a call and official visit from him. Also, for recruiting, please use Coach Maher (I hope he is still doing this) as a resource to get your name out there and get recruited, I can't tell you how many calls I got because of him. But take things into your own hands and contact coaches on your own. Keep them updated with your success, and you'll be surprised on how well it works.

Finally, GET OUT OF STATE. As great as Harvard and BU wrestling camps are (sorry Jay), your always going to expose yourself to the same kind of technique. Same kind of coaching, and wrestle the same kind of kids. Go out of state, and get a new experience. Also, find tournaments out of state to go to as well. Wrestling kids from other states with better technique will improve your game 10 fold.

I don't wish to preach, and when it comes down to it, I'm only a year older than most of you, and cannot claim to be wiser. However these are some things I have come across in my time here, and I wish to just share them with you. (plus I'm tired of hearing how much mass "sucks" from my teammates) If I can be of anyhelp to anyone on recruiting issues and wrestling at the D1 level, let me know. Good luck, and train hard.

Sincerely,
Dan Fox
(Needham 189)
(now starting for Duke)

For those of you who haven't used Jim's FREE service, you're missing out. I personally know of at least 3 seniors who have heard from 5 or more coaches each. Don't wait until the last minute as these coaches are in full recruiting mode NOW and will have made their decisions and lined up their recruits before the season starts. DO IT NOW!!

Here we go:

If you are a Senior wrestler and will/may be interested in wrestling in college, please request a recruiting questionnaire. -email-


Here is how it works:

1) You request a questionnaire.

2) You fill it out entirely and email it back to me.

3) I will review it and make sure it is all filled out.

4) I will forward it to 120+ Div1, 2, 3, NWCA, NAIA or JR Colleges.

5) If those coaches are interested in contacting you, they will contact you directly and I will have no further involvement.

6) Your information will only be given to college coaches only, unless you request it be sent to Prep schools too.

Hi James,

Thank You for all of the information you have been sending to me. I am definitely looking for recruits from your area who may be interested in attending school in New York City. We have a fairly competitive program (we finished in 8th place in the NCAA Division III Championships last year). I will be especially in need of recruits in the 165 and 285 lb. weight classes. We are looking for student athletes with a combined score of 1100 SAT (Math & Verbal) and 80 and above high school averages. We offer an Honors Program (free tuition and dormitory, a $7,500 student expense account, cultural passes to New York City museums etc. and free lap tops to students in the program). To apply to this program a student must have at least a 1200 combined verbal/math SAT score and a composite high school average of 90 or above (see [link] and link up with CUNY Honors program).
I hope we can encourage some of your kids to apply to this program. Please continue to send me information and let me know if you have particular kids interested in this program.
Thank you again for all of your help.
Bob
Please feel free to give your kids my home telephone # (732) 335-0616 or my cell @ (732) 241-1642.

Wrestlers,

I got a call today from a Div 3 Coach in NY and he was disappointed about the recruiting service. He had been leaving messages for a Mass Wrestler, who isn't returning his calls.

If your going to use this free recruiting service, please have the common courtesy to return phone calls or letters. If your not interested, have the maturity to call the coach and let him know. He won't get mad, but will be saving him time so he can recruit some one else.

Don't pass up the oppertunity to wrestle in College, d-2, d-3 and Junior Colleges offer great program. Not all High school wrestlers can compete at D-1, but all can continue on and enjoy the sport while getting a good education and $$$ is there for scholar athletes. Sign up with Jim and take a chance

Coach Maher,

I am emailing you to see if you would have any guys whom are interested in wrestling in the next level and possibly here at Ferrum College. We are a brand new division program in Ferrum, Virginia. If they are interested in getting a great education, but also want to go to an environment where they will be provided with the resources to excel in wrestling, Ferrum College is a great place. We have a stand-alone wrestling facility with coaches that have coached at the highest levels. I myself am a Division 1 All American and have coached at the division 1 ranks for numerous years. I have no doubt we will be taking this program to great heights. Our goal is to win a National Title and I am looking for student-athletes whom want the same thing. It will be hard and I will be hard on them, but I guarantee they will have no regrets about their career.

Please send me any student-athletes that we should be looking at this year. Please include:

Name:
Grad Year:
High School:
Home Address:
Cell Number:
Email:
State tournament Finish:

...we will take care of the rest!!!

Also, if they want to find out more about who I am and what our program is like, please encourage them to like us on facebook or me on twitter.
