One of up and coming states, on a national level, is Colorado. There are currently two Colorado natives sitting atop the national rankings and a handful of other younger, talented wrestlers that should become household names within the next couple of years.

This year’s state tournament featured a historic crop of wrestlers that we will detail later. The tournament itself is held each year in the Pepsi Center in Denver and is among the best spectacles to see from a fan’s standpoint.
