103lbs - Zac Hall (St. Johns), Fr.
Hall put together a stellar freshman season that only saw
him lose one match, which came up while bumped up to
112.  He was unbeaten at 103 and was dominant en route
to his 1st state title.  While Hall's freshman prep season
was impressive, it was his off-season accolades that
make him a lock for the 103lb Dream Team spot.  He was
7th at the Cadet Freestyle Nationals in Fargo last summer,
he won the Grappler Fall Classic over big names such as Mitch Rogaliner,
Cole Weaver, and Fargo champ Phil Laux.  He then placed 6th at the
Super 32 Challenge.  He finished the season ranked 17th in the country at
103lbs by InterMat and Hall is one of the top freshman in the state of

112lbs - Devane Dodgens (Chippewa Hills), Sr.
Dodgens repeated as Division 3 state champ this year,
winning his 2nd title at 112lbs and this year he did so
without losing a match all year long.  Last summer
Dodgens had a strong showing at the Disney Duals,
going 6-3 with a couple losses coming to highly ranked
individuals, including a 6-2 loss to PA State Champ Nick
Roberts.  He also earned a spot on the Michigan Dapper Dan team this
spring and competed against the WPIAL in the showcase event.  He has
not committed for college yet, however, he will be a good pickup for
someone and is one of the top projected 125lbers in this year's class.

119lbs - Conor Youtsey (Mason), Sr.
Youtsey won his 3rd straight Division 2 State Title this year,
completing an undefeated senior season which makes
for back-to-back unbeaten seasons.  He broke out last
summer going 11-1 at the Junior Duals and then earning
Junior Freestyle All-American honors in Fargo.  He was
the only Michigan wrestler to be selected to the Dapper
Dan USA team and he was 2nd at the FloNationals. 
Youtsey lost only 2 matches in his entire prep career, he
was named Mr. Wrestler for the State of Michigan by MWA and he will now
take his talents to West Point to wrestle for the US Military Academy. 
InterMat's final rankings placed Youtsey as the #6 119lber in the country.

125lbs - Joey White (Dundee), Sr.
White was not the top ranked 125lber in our final Power
15 rankings, however, an All-American finish at the
NHSCA Senior Nationals moved him into the top spot,
landing himself on the Dream Team.  White won his 1st
Division 3 State Championship this year with a 40-3 final
record.  He competed almost all of his season up at 130
or 135lbs for the lightweight-loaded Dundee squad, which
accounted for his losses.  White had a good summer last year in Disney
earning All-American honors and beating 3x MI State Champ Nick Smith. 
He also wrestled well at the Grappler Fall Classic last October, placing 3rd
in a loaded 130lb weight class.  Last month, White capped his career with
his best national showing to date, placing 4th at the NHSCA Senior

130lbs - Joe Rendina (Dundee) Sr.
This is a repeat showing on the Dream Team 1st team for
Rendina as he has been the top 130lber in Michigan for
the last two years.  Rendina was untouched and for the
most part un-challenged in the state of Michigan this year
as he dominated the Division 3 State Tournament to win
his 2nd State Title.  He has always been competetive on
the national stage, and this year was no different as he
put together a strong showing at the Junior Duals last summer and placed
6th at the Super 32 last fall.  An All-American finish at the NHSCA Senior
Nationals capped off a great career and locked his spot on the Dream
Team for this Universtiy of Cornell bound senior.

135lbs - Alec Mooradian (Detroit Catholic Central), Jr.
Mooradian is one of three wrestlers in Michigan's Class of
2012 that will be vying to become 4x State Champions
next year.  This year was possibly his most impressive as
he jumped from 119 to 135 and remained dominant,
going undefeated throughout the season en route to his
3rd state title.  Mooradian remains consistent nationally.
Last summer he scored some big wins competing at an
array of events including the Americas Cup, Junior Duals, and Fargo.  This
spring he earned All-American status at the FILA Junior Freestyle
Nationals, placing 6th among a field that consisted largely of college

140lbs - Chris Rau (Dundee), Sr.
The fourth Dundee wrestler to make the Dream Team,
Rau had a strong senior season that ended with an All-
American showing at the NHSCA Senior Nationals.  Rau
won his 2nd state title this year for the Vikings going
undefeated at 140lbs.  He was 3-2 in Fargo last year, lost
in the blood round of the Super 32s, and is signed on to
wrestle at Eastern Michigan next year.  He finally broke
through and placed nationally at Senior Nationals and this is his first
Dream Team appearance.

145lbs - Andrew Morse (Lowell), Jr.
Morse makes his first appearance on the dream team
after winning the state title for the first time.  While a state
title has eluded him until this year, Morse has always
been competetive on the national stage and this year was
no different as he placed 3rd at the FloNationals with
some wins over highly ranked opponents including PA
State Champ Matt Cimato.  Morse was dominant at the
State Tournament, winning a very tough weight class that included Fargo
Double All-American Travis Curley.  He is one of many extremely talented
seniors to watch for in the recruiting news next fall. 

152lbs - Jordan Wohlfert (St. Johns), Jr.
Wohlfert, much like Andrew Morse, got the monkey off his
back this year winning his first State Championship.  He
has been one of the best grapplers in Michigan since
arriving on the scene two years ago and he has continued
to excel nationally.  This year he was a perfect 60-0 and
cruised to the Division 2 State Title, scoring 3 major
decisions  and a technical fall.  At the state meet he outscored his
opponents by a total of 64-11 over the weekend.  He was 5-2 last year in
Fargo, a match shy of placing, but has a Cadet National title on his resume
from two summers ago, making him a valuable commodity on the
recruiting front.

160lbs - Taylor Massa (St. Johns), Jr.
Massa fell just short of earning Wrestler of the Year
honors this year, but the 3x state champ earned his 3rd
Dream Team honor and next year he will vy to become the
first ever 4x 1st Team Dream Teamer, in addition to a 4x
state champ. In terms of national competetion, Massa's
resume is second to none.  He was 3rd in both styles last
summer in Fargo, he was 3rd at the Super 32, and he
won the FILA Junior Freestyle National Championships this spring.  He
has not lost a match in high school to date, and is on pace to become just
the 5th ever 4x undefeated state champion in Michigan history.  He is rated
as the #1 recruit in the country in the Class of 2012 and is going to be one
of the most sought after recruits in the land over the next 6 months.

171lbs - Jordan Thomas (Greenville), Jr.
Thomas, who is ranked among the top 10 in the country in
every national poll, won his 2nd state title this year and did so with relative ease to earn his 2nd
appearance on the Dream Team 1st Team.  This fall he made his college commitment The Universtiy
of Michigan, as a high school junior, which shows the kind of talent that he  posseses.  Last summer he
continued his Fargo success, earning Junior Freestyle All-American honors and this spring he was a
FILA Junior All-American, placing 6th among mostly college wrestlers.  He is rated by InterMat as one of
the top pound-for-pound juniors in the country.

189lbs - Gabe Dean (Lowell), Jr.
Yet another junior on the Dream Team, Dean makes his debut after going undefeated and winning the
Division 2 State Title.  Dean, who is also a standout Quarterback for the Red Arrow football team, will
likely be very sought after to wrestle in college as well after a runner-up showing at the FloNationals
this year as well as at the Americas Cup last year in California where he beat 2x CA State Champ Tank
Knowles.  He is ranked top 10 nationally at 189lbs and next year will be one of the most highly regarded
big men in the country.

215lbs - Adam Coon (Fowlerville), So.
Wrestling against almost all upperclassmen, Coon continues to dominate.  He finished this year
undefeated en route to his 2nd state title, beating the Division 1 State Champ during the season.  Just
a sophomore, he has already done more on the Freestyle/Greco circuit than most dream of in a career,
including a Cadet Greco National Title last summer as well as a Runner-Up finish in Freestyle.  This
spring he won the FILA Cadet Nationals in both styles to earn a spot on the United States FILA Cadet World Team.

285lbs - Quean Smith (Highland Park), Sr.
Smith won his 2nd state Division 2 State Title at heavyweight and did so in dominant fashion as he went
unchallenged throughout the tournament.  He avenged his only loss of the year to Justin Dozier,
beating the D1 champ the 2nd time they met.  HIs appearance on the Dream Team is his first, and after
season-ending injury to Devin Pommerenke took him out of the running, having a nationally ranked
wrestler like Smith slide in shows the depth that is present in the State of Michigan.  He is committed to
wrestle at Iowa State after high school.
