The Crushers from Bishop McCort (Johnstown, PA) enters the Ironman for the first time and will bring perhaps the youngest team in the tournament. But don’t be fooled by their age. Their youth movement is as promising as we have seen.
“We are excited to come to the number one in season tournament in the country” said former Coach Bill Bassett. “We are definitely looking forward to it and are bringing nine or ten wresters to compete with our oldest wrestler being a Junior.”
The roster includes three highly ranked marquis wrestlers that will be strong challengers in their respective weights. Rankings supplied by Flo Sports.
Freshman Bo Bassett ranked #1 at 113.
Freshman Jax Forrest ranked #1 at 120 and #4 at P4P
Junior Mason Gibson ranked #3 at 126 and #30 at P4P
“I am so excited to finally get a chance to compete at Ironman. I watched all the greats compete there and finally get my chance. This is the premier event for HS wrestling, and I can’t wait. Ironman is our states and postseason”-Bo Bassett
“I can’t wait for my chance to wrestle Davino and McGowan. We are the best at the weight, and it will be settled at Ironman. I am honored to get to compete. I would rather be at Ironman than Pa States.”-Mason Gibson
“Ironman is the best HS tournament of the season. We value this event more that PIAA states. I am excited for my teammates and I to show all our hard work “-Jax Forrest
