Alex Rozas may be forgiven for his 17-1 technical fall over Houston Westside's Santiago Ramirez in the 106 lbs. finals.  The extra point for a fall would still have kept the Rebels under 300 points, and he did well with three previous falls prior to meeting Shaw's Caden Judice in the semifinals.  A 10-3 win over a talent like Judice is no easy feat.  Hopefully,  the freshman's knack for TFs (he has 26 after this event) will not bite him, perhaps in a close dual meet in which had one match gone another way the five-point TF would cause a tie-breaking scenario, whereas a pin would "seal the deal."  But what are the odds of a circumstance like that occurring in the next three weeks?

This weight class was the only one in which the seeding committee was dead-on.  The top-four placers were in a class by themselves, followed by another class of the 5th and 6th placers, followed by a class of all the rest.  Rozas' seven-point win over Judice was matched only by a 7-0 win in the Texas Outlaw finals.  Santiago had a hard time as well in his semifinals match, defeating #3 Jacob Kershaw of North Desoto 5-3.  Rozas decided to make his own class in the finals, though, by just dominating Ramirez.
