Region 9 proposal goes against what sport is about

No one involved in the sport of wrestling ever looks for a shortcut.


This is the sport that gave us the Blood Round, unparalleled discipline and sacrifice.

So I don’t understand the idea of ​​creating a non-public “Region 9” to be passed around by public school ring trainers.

I get it. The better wrestlers go to private schools. Period.

Joseph Abill of Clifton, right, wrestles in a 215 lb bout against Matthew Murray of Paramus Catholic on day one of the NJSIAA State Wrestling Tournament in Atlantic City on Thursday, March 2, 2023.

You think they’re going to be lured under the table with ZERO deals or whatever and it’s ruining the sport. It ruins what makes the sport interesting to the general public, destroys its roots.

It’s not just happening in North Jersey. Yes, we have our superpowers here – I don’t need to tell you who they are – and imagine, they just keep getting better.
