Illinois Matmen 2017-18 Season

I (Mike Bare aka admin) have been overwhelmed by the support Illinois Matmen has received over the past few days from the Illinois wrestling community and have decided to move forward with the 2017-18 season.

We will once again have our own set of Illinois Matmen high school individual and team rankings, articles on duals and tournaments, feature stories on wrestlers, coaches, and programs, highlight videos from the biggest events including the IHSA state tournament, live broadcasts from around the state, timely dual and tournament results, and a lively discussion forum as in years past.

In order to get quality people to help us produce this quality content and to keep it all FREE to our tens of thousands of visitors, we need your help.

Please consider making a donation. From a small donation of a few dollars to something much larger, anything you are willing and able to give is greatly appreciated and will go directly towards providing coverage for the hard-working wrestlers in our state. If everyone that loves this site chips in, we will easily reach our goal and be able to provide great coverage all season long.

As you know, wrestling doesn't get the coverage it deserves in mainstream media (newspapers and TV). Illinois Matmen is committed to giving wrestlers a platform they can be proud of and turn to for all things Illinois wrestling.

Thanks for your consideration and continued support!
