Looking back to our post season rankings, Marcus Coleman is the big mover, going from #6 all the way to #2 with his Cadet Fargo runner-up finish. Other than that no one new moved into the top 10, and only Drew West and Tristan Lara managed to jump the man ahead of them. Two highly talented wrestlers sit just outside the top ten after All-American finishes out at Fargo.


1. Alex Thomsen – Underwood
2. Brody Teske – Fort Dodge
3. Anthony Sherry – Glenwood
4. Michael Millage – Crestwood
5. Noah Fye – New Hampton
6. Kyle Biscoglia – Waukee
7. Trey Brisker – Wilton
8. Grant Stotts – WDM Valley
9. Bryce Esmoil – West Liberty
10. Nathan Lendt – Southeast Polk
First two out: Ben Sarasin – Cedar Rapids Kennedy and Zach Price – Johnston

Alex Thomsen takes over as the new number one after having an impressive summer and preseason. Kyle Biscoglia breaks into the rankings as the #6 guy after placing at UWW Cadets, Fargo, and Super 32; he factors to be a top contender at either 106 or 113 in 3A this year. Noah Fye was another guy on the move, up two spots after a solid Preseason Nationals and Super 32 performances.
