A Hint Of Things To Come

So the election is ticking me off and the local sports news isn’t much better (Jumbo Shrimp? Really??) and I thought I’d give you guys a first look, before I start announcing to the larger world, what new developments you’re going to see here starting in just a FEW WEEKS!

So, after you read this, go take a look at the 16-17 Duals page and click on the Statewide dropdown menu (the local one will be populated in very similar ways that you’ve seen in the previous three years). I took four duals off of Trackwrestling that were contested toward the end of the regular season last year. I’m making those very simple. That took me about five minutes to do.

Also, go take a look at the 16-17 IBTs page and click on the Statewide dropdown menu. I put together brackets — that, again, were easily found on Trackwrestling and made a PDF out of them — for the PCAC tournament, a two-day IBT in Pinellas County. That took a little longer because making a PDF from scratch naturally does. When I get PDFs ready-made from tournament hosts (hint hint), it’s much easier to simply copy/paste and boom! Instant content!

This is a note for the out-of-area readers looking at this post: Guys and gals, this is what I’ve been doing, for the past three seasons, for the Northeast area and last year the Northwest. I can’t write stories on the out-of-area stuff, like I have and will keep doing for the north, but for the most part you’ve been operating in (mostly) the dark when it comes to finding results. This website is a one-stop shop toward a different way of doing things. More information is better than less. If you agree, and want to help, email your dual results and tournament/roundrobin brackets to flamatmen@gmail.com once the regular season begins later this month. (LOCALS should use the email addresses they already have).

Who’s ready to get started? I’M READY TO GET STARTED!!!


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.
