Final Fab 50 Standings Released, Natale wins 2010 Fab 50

8/6 - The 3rd season of the Fab 50 came to an end a few months ago
and all the scores have been submitted and tabulated.  After an intense
year of youth wrestling with over 100 Michigan wrestlers who competed
in many of the 40 events on the Fab 50 schedule, it was Caden Natale
of Shamrock Wrestling Club/Grizzly Elite Wrestling Club who finished
atop the standings.

Natale, who competed in the 5-6 year old division this year, was a true
Fab 50 ironman, scoring 196 points while competing in a total of 26 Fab
50 events from August thru April.  He won a total of 21 tournament titles
this year, including the Viper Pit in Ohio, Northeast Nationals in
Pennsylvania, the MYWAY Spartan Country Kickoff, and the MUSAW
Freestyle State Championship. 

By scoring the most Fab 50 points, Natale has locked up Michigan
Grappler Fab 50 Youth Wrestler of the Year Honors for the 2009-2010
season.  He is the third wrestler of the year, following Zack Cooper of
Big Rapids in 2009 and Mark Hall of Davison who won the first Fab 50
title back in 2008.

Hunter Scheider of Midland finished runner-up with 146 points. 
Schneider, much like Natale, was very busy this season placing in a
total of 25 Fab 50 events.

MYWAY State Champs Michael Ellis-Harris, James Johnston, and
Andrew Hughes round out the top 5.  Fellow MYWAY State Champs
Chris Fauson and Hunter Fifield, as well as MYWAY State Runners-Up
Jacob Cooper and Jesus Jimenez, finished in the top 10 as well. 

All Top 10 finishers earned at-large berths on the 2010 Michigan Grappler All-Future Youth Dream Team.

Of the Top 10 wrestlers, 9 of them placed top 4 at the Border Wars Folkstyle Nationals last November in Battle Creek.

The complete All-Future team will be released in the coming weeks on
