Take a peak at the 113s returning in 2021-2022

2021-2022 Previews

Over the next several months, we will begin to release preview information as we ramp up to the start of another school year and another season of GHSA Wrestling.  

First up will be weight class previews, we will release one weight class per day (hopefully), starting at 106.  We will list and rank the top 15 returning wrestlers from each classification at each weight.  Obviously, many of these wrestlers will be changing weight classes for the upcoming season, but this should give you an idea of who all should be returning this season.  Information on a wrestlers grade level was taken from whatever was listed in Trackwrestling, we are sure that there may be some errors, and we apologize in advance.  We are also unaware of any transfers at this time, so it is entirely possible that wrestlers could have moved on to another school.  June 21st-July 16th

Towards the end of July we will begin our Area/Region previews.  We will cover four Areas/Regions in a classification each day, breaking down the favorites to advance to the state duals.  This set of previews will end with our projected State Duals Brackets, assuming the GHSA releases this information sometime in July.  July 19th-August 13th

Hope you enjoy the previews!!

7 of the top 8 and 10 of the top 12 wrestlers from this weight class will return in 2022.  Region 1 definitely leads the way here with two returning placers and a wrestler that fell in the Blood Round.  But, Region 3 is nipping at their heels with all three of their wrestlers finishing just out side of the top 4.

Only 4 State Placers return at this weight, with two of them coming from Region 2.   Region 8 will also be returning 3 very talented wrestlers that made deep runs in Macon.  Keep an eye out for two tough non qualifiers in Labasi (Sequoyah) and Gentry (Buford), they will definitely make some noise somewhere this season.

4 returning State Placers in this classification, and all 4 of them were Region Champs.  Crapps (Cass) is one of several Class of '24 wrestlers that is vying for the pound for pound #1 spot in his grade level.

15 Zion Ellis (North Clayton) 11

 

Only 3 of the State Placers from this weight will be returning, but the reigning Champion is one of them.  Region 8 is the home of the defending Champ, along with several other wrestlers that will look to push for a spot on the podium.

3A

1 Garrett Pace (Rockmart) 10
2 Arturo Gonzalez (Gilmer) 12
3 Jesus Sanchez (Coahulla Creek) 12

14 Caden Autry (White Co) 10
15 Charles Scherer (Morgan Co) 10

 

Both finalists at this weight will return for the 2022 season, along with 3 other State Placers.  Region 4 looks to have the most returning talent, with two returning Placers, but don't sleep on Regions 6 and 8.

2A

1 Bryan Valladares (Oglethorpe Co) 12 1st-113
2 Angel Cruz (Banks Co) 11 3rd-113
3 Gabe Sheets (Haralson Co) 10 5th-113

12 Gabe Evans (Monticello) 11 R16-113
13 Sammy Ford (Putnam Co) 11 R16-113
14 Rashaun McAllister (Glenn Hills) 11 STQ-113
15 Brock Bullock (Bremen) 12 STQ-113

 

4 returning State Placers in this classification, including the Champ.  Kennedy of Lovett suffered a nasty injury at State last year, look for him to improve greatly on that R12 finish.

1A

1 Brayden Adams (Calvary Day) 12
2 Daegan Vaughn (Trion) 12
3 Connor Castillo (Social Circle) 10
4 Thomas Johnson (Charlton Co) 12

12 Jackson Terrell (First Presbyterian) 11
13 Tristen Powell (Irwin Co) 11
14 Charlie Vaughn (Athens Academy) 10
15 Sam Robbins (Screven Co) 10

 

Both finalists from last year are gone, so keep an eye on 3x State placer Vaughn of Trion, to see if he can finally take that step up to the top of the podium.
