The Pacesetter feature will be a recurring weekly feature through the end of the season in the second week of March. Have a nomination you’d like us to spotlight? Wrestlers must have exemplary record on the mat and character and sportsmanship off it as well. Drop us a line at with your nomination. Thank you for your support!


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.
