2011 JJHuddle All-Ohio Wrestling Teams
There might not be a harder all-star team to make than the JJHuddle All-Ohio Wrestling Team. Why? Because this state is stacked with talent and there are only 14 slots available. Here’s who earned our All-Ohio honors this year…
The Ohio high school wrestling season concluded this past weekend with another memorable State Wrestling Tournament at Ohio State’s Scottenstein Center. Lakewood St. Edward regained the Division I state title, while Graham captured it’s 11th straight D-II state title. In D-III, three four-time winners from Monroeville stole the show.
So what can we do for an encore? How about unveiling our 2011 JJHuddle All-Ohio Wrestling Teams.
In addition to revealing all-state teams in each division, we also unveil our all-division All-Ohio team.
This state has several of the country’s top teams and individuals and that’s reflected in these lists. We dare another state to come up with a better line-up.
