With another week of registration to go for the 25th Annual NHSCA High School National Wrestling Championships, it's hard to handicap the Junior Division because of the amount of talent that will descend upon Virginia Beach.

From top-to-bottom, the NHSCA Juniors will be deep with talent.  There are nine wrestlers entered so far that are three-time state champs (see below), plus a large  number of wrestlers that have captured between one-and-two state championships.

Making the trip east will east from Arizona will be Ryan Allred of Camp Verde High School in Arizona.  Allred, who is entered in the Junior Nationals at 138 pounds, is a three-time Arizona state champ, who has only lost one match in his high school career.

That one loss came during Allred's freshman year, according to The Daily Courier in Prescott, Arizona.  The newspaper writes that it was a one-point loss after he broke his ankle during the second period of the bout.

Allred's quote after battling through the injury, "I'd rather die than lose. I hate losing."

Allred, who helped Camp Verde win the Arizona Division 4 team title this year, capped his junior season by winning Arizona's 145-pound title.

After beating Snowflake's Isaih Diaz 16-1 in the state championship match, Allred told The Daily Courier, "This year my goal was to dominate the state.  I wanted to come in, try to get all pins.  It didn't happen. I had a tough kid in the finals. But it was still really exciting.
