Exactly what wrestling doesn't need. Everybody will preach all day long about integrity and ethics and parents are sacrificing all of that for winning. And for those parents who actually think that going to another school will help their kid get a scholarship, wake up. That help is minimal if anything. Ryan Christianson went to Woodinville of all places and is likely a local legend for it. I'm sure he is celebrated by his community and families he grew up with unlike those who will travel somewhere else to go to school while living where they grew up. Have some pride in your community, folks. Parents, make your kids focus on school and that will help get your kids a scholarship. Those national tournaments will get your kids much more exposure than being on a state championship team. And let's not forget that these kids should have a good overall high school experience. The late nights hanging out at friends' houses and pool parties are memories I will never forget. I would never forgo that for anything. What about prom, homecoming, getting to know your kids' friends, boyfriends, girlfriends? Is that all supposed to evolve around wrestling? You parents who are sacrificing all of this in order for your kids to be "better" are losing much more than you realize.
