Guys, you don't need to end your championship run by doing a throw your know you shouldn't do. It just makes very little sense in the regular season and it makes no sense in post-season. It you take him/her up you are responsible to return them to the mat safely. By a champ, not a chump.
The other thing I noticed this weekend, and actually all season, it that many kids don't sink the half all the way to the elbow when they have the opponent on his back. Why would you not go elbow deep if your want the pin? This is one of the basics. As a ref I am down there looking for a fall and the kid is getting angry because wants the fall and it is not there. If you want the fall then you have to force your opponents shoulders to the mat for 2 seconds. That generally requires proper technique by the time you get to post-season. The fish are gone by now so if you turn him with the half, sink it deep when he goes over.
As an added measure, grab his far arm at the wrist and extend it and pull it up towards his head. These are basics that kids should be doing if they want a pin. I can't call what isn't there. Those basics may cause someone to win an extra match or two at state. Will it be you?
