Today, action will get underway at the 25th annual Walsh Ironman tournament which will take place from Walsh Jesuit High School in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Year in and year out the Ironman is recognized as the toughest in-season high school event of the season. This year is no exception, and the field looks as strong as ever. Undoubtedly wrestlers that star at this year’s Ironman will be hitting the collegiate and international scene in the next couple of years and making waves on those levels, as well. You don’t need to look much farther than the current college rankings to find wrestlers that have been successful at this tournament. In fact, six of the ten number one ranked wrestlers were finalists at this event at some point in their high school careers. We’ve gone through the current DI rankings and found all of the wrestlers who are currently ranked that placed in the top eight at this prestigious tournament.
