NYS Wrestling Film to Digital
March 30, 2017, 02:09:33 PM by webmstr
Armdrag.com has recently been given film masters of the NYS high school wrestling finals from 1979 - 1999 (plus more from the 1970s as well as a few mystery reels!). This film needs to be converted to digital before it's lost (hopefully we're not already too late).
After shopping around, we found a place outside of Syracuse (Industrial Color Labs) that will do the conversion at a reasonable price.
Please help us raise $1000 to pay for this conversion, and we will upload it to YouTube for all to enjoy.https://www.gofundme.com/nys-wrestling-film-to-digital

With the offseason upon us we have started to plan our dual event for next year. It will be January 13th and we hope to have 8-10 teams attend so that all teams have 5 duals. We usually have a diverse field of several sections along with one PA team. In the past we have ranged from state ranked teams attending to less tough teams. Our goal is to get several Section II, III, IV, V, and VI teams. I want this event to continue to be one where wrestlers can come and get tough matches against new opponents.

Ohio Tournament of Champions

2017 Ohio Tournament of Champions - 25th Anniversary
New for 2017: Region Competition - with chance to win up to $2500 cash grant, to help support wrestling in your Region
February 13, 2017
The Ohio Tournament of Champions, considered one of the toughest post season wrestling tournaments in the country, as well as being the largest one day event, will be held at the Columbus Convention Center, in Columbus, OH, on April 22.
This year marks the event’s 25th Anniversary and tournament organizers are expecting 3000 participants. Currently, entries are running at more than 75% ahead of last year’s pace, which saw nearly 2500 entries, and 16 states are already represented.
Registration is currently open, thru April 14, with extended registration closing out on April 16, at http://www.ohiotofc.com
- there will be no entries accepted after after that. Age groups, which are determined by the birth year, range from 8 and under and go thru high school. There is also an Open Division, for those wrestlers that have graduated high school.
Past participants read like a who’s who of wrestling, including: Jon Reader (10X Champion), Logan Stieber (6X Champion), Kyle Dake (1X placer - 4X placer), David Taylor (2X Champion) and Coleman Scott (2X Champion).
Other past competitors have included: Kyle Snyder, Mark Hall (6X Champion), Dean Heil (4X Champion), Anthony Collica (3X Champion), Lance Palmer (3X Champion), Collin Palmer (8X Champion), Zahid Valencia (2X Champion), Luke Pletcher (9X Champion), Cade Olivas (7X Champion), Mark Grey (6X Champion), Eric Tannenbaum (5X Champion), Kaleb Romero (5X Champion), Kenny Courts (5X Champion), Hunter Stieber (5X Champion), Dustin Schlatter (4X Champion), C.P.Schlatter (2X Champion), Austin O'Connor (2X Champion), Yianni Diakomihalis (4X Champion), Michael Poeta (3X Champion), Zeke Moisey (3X Champion), Nathan Tomasello (1X Champion), Jason Tsirtsis (1X Champion), Myles Martin, J. Jaggers (3X Champion) and many others.
While the event is an individual tournament, with awards being given out to the top eight place finishers in each age/weight class, a new twist was added this year - Region Competition.
“Basically, we have divided the United States up into about 40 Regions,” Tournament Chairman Bart Freidenberg said. “When a wrestler registers, he will select the Region that he resides in. The top 25 place finishers, in each Region, will score points for his Region. So, every wrestler is a potential point scorer.”
Freidenberg added that the top five Regions will win cash grants, ranging from $500 to $2500, which will go directly to support wrestling in the winning Regions. “We’ll see how the entries go,” Freidenberg said,” so there may even be additional money allocated to either the top five Regions, or additional placing Regions. We haven’t decided on that part yet.”
With the Region Competition, the event has added a new category of qualification, “Wildcard Entry.” Basically this is just an additional exemption that folks can use to register,” said Freidenberg. “We anticipate that 99 percent, or more, of our entries will have already met some other qualification, to enter. In the past, many folks have met one of the qualifications, or exemptions, but weren’t aware that they had, so they never bothered to enter. This just sort of streamlines things and makes it easier for folks.
Also back is the Club & Team Competition, which is again based on wrestler’s individual place finishes. ”There was a lot of confusion on which Division to enter last year,” Freidenberg said. “This year, the clubs and teams will just pick the Division based on the prize they are hoping to win.” This years prizes range in value from $500-$1500 worth of custom wrestling apparel and gear.
The Tournament has also announced its first two Special Guests for the event: Frank Jasper, who portrayed Shute, in the movie “Vision Quest” and Grayson Russell, who portrayed Texas Ranger in “Talladega Nights” and Fregley in the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” movies. Both will be on hand to sign autographs for all the attendees.
You can follow tournament updates on their Facebook page, at: You can also like the event’s Facebook page, at https://www.facebook.com/ohiotofc/
and the event itself will be streamed live on Flo Wrestling.

Former Fulton Wrestler and cancer survivor Tim Conners is heading up Mount Kilimanjaro this spring!
On May 22nd , 2017, an incredible team will be setting out on a life changing mission to climb the highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro. Although summiting this mountain would be an amazing feat for anybody, for 22 year old Timothy Conners it is going to mean so much more not only for him, but the world. At 15 years old a deathly diagnosis of cancer would take so much away from Tim including his ability to walk, but even more than that, his sight. Despite his life circumstances, Tim has continued to fight back against all odds in his life including an experience of heart, lung, and kidney failure that almost took him from this world, and now he wants to give back. Even though Tim is still dealing with issues today from everything he experienced at such a young age including neuropathy in his legs, he wants to continue fighting his uphill battle in life, and that next battle is what we are calling MounTimPossible, and not only involves conquering a mountain, but Tim's goal of raising 500,000 dollars for the organizations that have contributed greatly to his success, and he knows in his heart can do the same for others too.
