Smith takes off for the Great White North

That makes six #NextLevel signees for 2016-17, and that’s just in the Northeast area, with at least one more coming. The kids are doing all of the real work involved, but if what we’re doing here is making any difference, it’s showing kids that they can continue wrestling collegiately. And college programs are taking notice of this area’s athleticism.


Flanked by his parents and with coach Josean Gonzalez standing behind him, Kristopher Smith (St. Augustine ’16) signs his letter of intent to attend college and wrestle for Northland Community Technical College in Thief River Falls, Minn., starting in the fall. Smith was a two-time state qualifier for the Yellow Jackets (photo submitted by Jaime Cross).


I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in 2011. But as I thought I had in 1992, I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. New initiative this year is to create a space on my sites where ALL Florida results can be stored, searched, reviewed and used by my readers, with NO COST TO THEM.
