2016 Wrestler of The Year Ian Parker gets nod among studs at 140

1st Team - Ian Parker, St. Johns, Sr. (2016)

Ian Parker is the most recent of our first teamers thus far as it was this season that earned a the spot on our all time dream team.  Like many of the other dream teamers, he has been good throughout his career starting out as a little guy 103lber, and finishing as a beast middle weight.  He had a great fall this year, winning the GFC with a memorable finals win over fellow nationally ranked Joey Silva of Florida and then capped off the year and his career winning the Junior Freestyle National Title in Fargo.

Watch Parker's GFC Finals win over Joey Silva below:


Nate Limmex, Grand Rapids Catholic Central (2015)

Limmex was one of the most dominant wrestlers in Michigan his last couple years and his senior year he won the Grappler Fall Classic and was 3rd at Super 32s to finish the year ranked top 10 nationally.  You could definitely make a claim for Limmex as the first teamer here.  He is currently a redshirt freshman at Purdue.

Cole Weaver, Hudson (2014)

Weaver was a 3x state champ at Hudson who shined nationally throughout his career as well.  He was 4th at the Freakshow in Las Vegas his senior year and although he did not place in Fargo the summer prior, he beat eventual champ Seth Gross before being eliminated.  He was ranked nationally at the end of his season and is currently a redshirt sophomore at Indiana University.
