I am two years younger than you and I got to tell you, the notion of saying I wrestled 20 years ago and that referencing my senior year is a little surreal to me. I do look forward to wearing black socks with shorts though.
The Reaper, I suggest you to cut as little weight as possible to make weight. Even if you have to move up a weight class to do it. I believe that cutting weight when you're still growing can stunt your growth to some extent. My only data to support this is a pair of twins I knew in high school. One wrestled and one did not. The wrestler was still trying to make 132 lbs. as a senior. He did this for three years. When they graduated the wrestler was 5'8" at maybe 150. His brother that didn't wrestle was 6'1" and 175ish, and yes they were identical. Now I realize that one case is hardly a statistical example, but I doubt we will have many volunteers for a study resembling the example above. So it's really just my interpretation of the facts. FWIWShut the hell up and train.

I've never been a real insane cutter as far as wrestling goes, especially this year since I"m trying to bulk up to 185-190 from the 173 I am right now. I usually only drop 5lbs tops during wrestling season, while other kids I know live off of jello and water for days on end and run with about 6 layers of sweats on to drop like 10lbs in a week.

Did I miss a memo about the fireman's carry? I use it all the time and it works just fine for me.

For those of you that have trained in submission wrestling while also training/competing in wrestling, did you have any trouble switching back and forth?
I've done both but not at the same time. This season I'm going to keep training in submission wrestling so I hope I don't end up trying to use the guard etc. during a wrestling match.

Ask the younger Gracie boys. I heard they are on their highschool wrestling teams."Prison is for rapists, thieves and murderers. If you lock someone up for smoking a plant that makes them happy, you're the fucking criminal." - Joe Rogan
