Georgia’s Top 30 Wrestlers from 2010-2019
We here at Georgia Grappler have decided to post the Top 30 (actually Top 40) wrestlers from 2010-2019, that means if they wrestled in high school this past season, they weren’t eligible. The rankings were based on researched accomplishments in both HS and College as well as our own opinions based on what we saw when they wrestled here in Georgia. These are for fun, so please enjoy them and understand that we all have differing opinions. The rankings are not meant to slight anyone, but really to highlight and recognize those that competed here in the last decade.
