    i'm quite sure there are records of tournaments AMP must of won, seeing how he's an undefeated wrestler, or he must have some medals though that does not provide proof of an undefeated record only proof of an undefeated tournament.

    JV wrestling is not as high profile as Varsity but i'm willing to bet he's attended a few JV or Frosh/Soph or even Second Man tourneys. At least out here in California they provide chances for JV kids to prove their worth in something other than dual meets and i am willing to bet out in the DC area would be no different.

    i actually would. and i wrestled in highschool.

    in a large part of the country, you just don't get a chance to compete very much if you're JV. you'll get to wrestle at a meet if the other team has guys near your weight or if someone on your team around your weight can't make it. you'll compete if you decide to go out of your way to the more open meet ups that some schools occasionally hold.

    other than that, there's a paucity of competitions open to jv guys. which is used as a spur to make jv wrestlers work that much harder and therefore get better so they can challenge for the spot.

    Perhaps you're right. I forget that i wrestled in state where 50-60 kids would compete in a single weight class at a freestyle tourney (and believe me, that's a rough estimate). If that's the case then, would it really be valid to brag about an undefeated record? There would be a strong possiblity of him only having wrestled a few times, devaluing the status of being undefeated. It's like that thread i read here sometime ago about a guy who was second in some sort of world tourney and he never won a match. Sure he's reckonized as the second best whatever but what's the point of bragging about something like that?

    in terms of the wrestling I'd like to a little bit more about where around DC he is, as virginia is usually fairly strong, and a jv record there would probably have almost as many matches as a varsity one, and might be somewhat respectable(though there is usually a noticable gap between the skills of a varsity versus a jv wrestler), DC itself and maryland not so much, they tend to be much weaker, and have a smaller number of wrestlers on all levels, and # of competitions for lower levels.
