1. NC State Wolfpack 

5-Year Cycle: NR, #19, #14, NR, NR
Ranked Recruits:
#4-Nick Reenan, TX (165/174)
#6-Hayden Hidlay, PA (149/157)
#42-Daniel Bullard, GA (174/184)
#43-Thomas Bullard, GA (165/174)
#66-Tariq Wilson, OH (133)
PG-Mike Rogers, PA (285)

Others: Tommy Cox, NY (125); Codi Russell, GA (125); Charlie Lenox, PA (133); Wade Cummings, PA (133/141); Kellen Devlin, NY (141); Chris Diaz, GA (141/149)

In Raleigh: The Wolfpack had its most successful campaign in history and this class will keep the optimism high. I’ve long referenced Frank Beasley as being one of the elite recruiters in college wrestling. No matter what school he’s been at, Beasley has recruited above expectations. This #1 class should put a bow on that distinction.

Why They’re Here: Five Top 100 recruits including elite talents in Reenan and Hidlay. With them and the Bullards, the back half of the line-up is set for years. And I’m high on Tariq Wilson, this year’s Ironman Champ, who projects well as a force in the college lightweights. When all is said and done, NC State may have gotten seven starters in one single class. The future stability of the program will hearken back to this class.

Needs for Next Year: As good as the Wolfpack’s season was, it may surprise you that they only graduate two starters (Gantt and Gwiazdowski). Watch for Boykin to bump up to HWT for a couple years before Rogers takes over and with Reenan and the Bullards in tow, you’re seeing that the only needs in the back have for the foreseeable future is at 197 and that’s IF Malik McDonald isn’t serviceable.
The haul also included good lightweight prospects. In addition to Wilson, who I consider a sure-fire starter, there are several talents here. Depending on how they develop, I expect The Pack to focus on blue chippers at 125 and 141.

Flashback Stat: In 2011, P.P. (pre-Popolizio) NC State had the 6th ranked recruiting class. But not one member of that group, headlined by Ohio’s Chris Phillips, made it on the roster more than a season.

2016 IC Jr High More Results




Vinnie Monseau:

Well, we just got word that my Dad, the Coach, scored dual meet wins number 398 and 399 tonight as he lead Magnolia High's wrestlers. Now for the "full circle" moment... His next duals are Saturday against Linsly and (wait for it ....) Weir High. My Dad graduated from Weir in 1958 and played on their 1957 WV state champion football team. He was exposed to the sport of wrestling at Weir High and coached there in the early 70's, now he will attempt win number 400 or 401 against his alma mater. Those of you that know him won't be surprised that he will be happy to simply see growth and increased maturity of character in this team, just as he did for the previous 47 years he has coached wrestling. He will also be quick to thank my Mom, his wife for 49 yrs, for her enduring tolerance and encouragement. As this 400th win approaches, I know that the number means nothing in comparison to the mentor this man is to so many of us. Truly, his mission has been to inspire others to their own successes, and stand back as we (not he) take the podium for our moments. God has used this Coach and his wife to let us know that wrestling, like other extra-curriculars, is a means to make and grow relationships. The results, whether wins OR losses, only make the bonds tighter. So, good luck, Dad. Go get #400 with all honor and respect. It's time for all Monseau wrestling alumni, old and young, to "circle the wagons". Our Coach, "Cool V" himself, is at it again. May God continue to bless him.

Very well written!

2015 West Virginia Chapter, National Wrestling Hall of Fame Induction

Stephen Shaffer -- "Lifetime Service to Wrestling" 

Stephen Shaffer graduated in 1968 from Brockway Area High School in Brockway, PA. Then he attended the College of the Ozarks and transferred to West Liberty State College and graduated with a B.A. in Elementary Education and Language Arts. In 1980, he received his Master's in School Administration from the University of Detroit. Stephen taught 5th grade at Madison School in Ohio County for 12 years before moving to teach Language Arts and Shop at Wheeling Park High. 

Coach Shaffer began coaching wrestling as an assistant to Coach Buzz Evans. During his coaching career, he helped Wheeling Park win 3 State Tournaments and 5 OVAC Championships. He took pride in helping the young athletes develop into mature, responsible, and dedicated young men while accomplishing their athletic goals. 

From 1998 through 2000, Stephen served a dual role in coaching when he was the assistant coach of the Wheeling Park girls basketball team, during which time he helped in winning 2 State Basketball Championships. In 2003, he was awarded the Assistant Wrestling Coach of the Year. From his coaching start, Stephen has helped with the running of the OVAC Wrestling Tournament. His greatest accomplishment is his creation of the Wheeling Park Duals which he began in 1990 and directed for 25 years. This is one of the largest Dual Meet Tournaments in the country. The tournament has hosted over 97 different teams over the last 25 years and at one point had 40 teams competing. He retired from teaching in 2007 and from coaching in 2015. 

Stephen resides in Wheeling with his wife, Mary Ellen. They have 4 children: Shane Shaffer, Shannon Tamburin, Stephanie O'Donnell and Samantha McQuaid. Nine grandchildren complete the family. 

The National Wrestling Hall of Fame honors Stephen Shaffer with a "Ufetime Service to Wrestling" award, class of 201S.

(Ohio Valley Athletic ex Coach) The purpose of this web site is to promote O.V.A.C. wrestling and the individuals that make it all possible. I don't proclaim to know everything about the O.V.A.C.'s or wrestling, but I did coach in the O.V.A.C.'s for 8 years so I do have some knowledge of the sport, coaches and the wrestlers (2002). I have also run www.OVAeCwrestling.com for the past 10 years.(2016)
