Rankings don't matter, heck state placing's don't really matter either. Even if your kid is a state champ he most likely won't do anything with his wrestling career after HS. Most good or great Washington wrestlers do nothing after HS. There are a few exceptions, but they are the exception, not the norm. A likely scenario is that your kid (whoever he is) is a state placer or maybe even a state champ, then at best he goes to Highline or some JC in Oregon, then after 2 years he goes on to that construction job somewhere and talks about his glory days as a wrestler until his kids finally grow up and he can live vicariously through them and worry about if his kid is ranked 5th or 6th on this board someday. You won't see this in states like California, Iowa, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, etc.. Why? Because the parents there know that HS is just a small stepping stone to the next stage and where wrestling really matters.
