Couple of #NextLevels

I have been alerted to Christian Tejada (Orange Park ’14) wrestling for Newberry (new roster not updated on college’s website) and that Travis Laxton (Suwannee ’10) will be at Coker for his final season while he’s in graduate school. Laxton is not on the Coker episode yet, but I’m told he will be.

That gives me four for-sures in Josh Fox, Robert Parland and now Tejada and hopefully Laxton. Not sure about whether Coll Robertson (Ridgeview ’13) will return to North Central (IL) College. I’d heard a few things in the air about Anthony Hauser (Oakleaf ’14), but nothing concrete…who else will be competing next year?

On a related note, I did hear that Charles Cuthbert (Fleming Island ’14) won the U.S. Naval Academy’s “Plebe Smoker” event at 141 pounds this summer. Cuthbert pinned an Indiana state runnerup to win the event. His graduating class, so I have been told, has 20 state placewinners and one additional qualifier in Thomas Monaghan (Fernandina Beach ’14).


I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in both 1992 and again in 2011. But I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. We combined those sites into North Florida Matmen in the summer of 2018. And, we've started South Georgia Matmen in November of 2018. Our work is never paywalled, our content is searchable for all time. We're here because the kids keep lacing 'em up, so we'll keep writing 'em up.
