    The big one is in the books; The Men's Junior Freestyle National Championships held their All-American matches on Tuesday and 120 wrestlers were able to get onto the national podium. This portion of “Fargo” included almost 1600 wrestlers competing for 15 stop signs. Needless to say, competition was fierce and there are plenty of quality competitors that missed the top-eight. Today we're looking at those that finished the tournament as All-American's and which colleges they will attend in the future.
