This was my first time seeing Chamberlain wrestle since he won it all as a
sophmore. Lets just say when you first glance at this kid, you would think he
is nothing special. However, what he did and the way he moves on the mat was
the most impressive display this past weekend with Lofthouse and Salazar showing
why they are great as well. Get off the idea of Salazar and Chamberlain
wrestling, two great wrestlers at two totally different weights. I also feel it
is way to early to compare Chamberlain to Sanderson, not taking anything from
both of their unreal High School carrers.
To me, this thread is what the idea of being able to comment on a story is all
about. Insightful, informative, courtious opinions and compliments to many
different wrestlers. Many times, especially in sports articles, the arguments
get heated and the personal back-and-forth responses get almost obscene. This
blog was a welcome respite.
i would like to see salazar wrestle chamberlain
Chamberlain's high school accolades are just as good as Cael's. The comparison
is valid at this point and the original author clearly said he might end up
being just as good. Nobody knows. Once Chamberlain loses in college, then we
can say, looks like Cael is better. Until then, none of us really know anything
other than Chamberlain's high school performance seems to equal or slightly
The comment about Chamberlain accomplishing slightly more in high school is
actually correct. Cael's high school record was 127-3. He also won four state
titles. However, Cael was the only NCAA wrestler to win the national title four
years in a row and went 159-0 in the BIG 12!! (Not to mention his other college
and Olympic wrestling accolades.) Sure Chamberlain is a great wrestler, but he's
not going to be wrestling in the toughest conference in all of college wrestling
at one of the consistently best programs in the country, and I highly doubt
he'll go undefeated and win a gold medal. Comparing Chamberlain and Cael is like
comparing Michael Jordan to Michael Beasley (Kansas State basketball this year
for anyone who doesn't know who he is.) Sanderson is a one-of-a-kind, but
Chamberlain is certainly someone VERY special too.
What was Sanderson's high school record? I thought he was undefeated. And did
Chamberlain lose two in his career?
Chamberlain had a better HS career than Cael did, if only slightly. Up to this
point he has accomplished more. That doesn't mean he'll have a better college
career. He plans on serving a mission after wrestling as a true freshman at
It is unfortunate that the winner is 4A SkyView was reported as Jared
Fredrickson when it was actually Jared Erickson.
Matt Brown is an incredible young man; astute student, loyal friend and the most
upstanding HS senior you will find. Oh yeah, and he's also a champion wrestler.
He is the picture of sportsmanship and treats opponents and coaches with the
respect they deserve. It was a pleasure to watch him seal his third straight
title last night, making CHS history.
Congrats Ethan and Raider. You two deserve all that you get. YOu have worked so
hard, and it is always so good to hear you win. I am glad that your team pulled
out the championship. It is always good to see you guys stay over at the house
after the wins.
Chamberlain is a stud. Salazar, Lofthouse, & Larsen are close behind in my
Nobody will ever be as good as Sanderson. No disrespect to Chamberlin, but we
are talking about Cale Sanderson
Don't get carried away, nobody will ever be as good as Cale.
Don't get carried away. Nobody will ever be better than Cale.
Springville's Chamberalin is the best wrestler this state has had since C.
Sanderson. When Chamberlin is done, he might be just a good.
