    The scary thing is he is still improving.  I think the team will be noticeably better this coming season as well.

    Agreed! He took a major leap up this year, and he was probably top two in the nation in his weight class – could have had a shot at a title.

    If he can just continue to hone things, the next two years could be even better.
