In lieu of the pandemic, we felt this was a great opportunity to gather all of the wrestling communities from throughout the state to participate in a virtual All-Time New York State Tournament. Many individual schools have recently put together their own "Best Ever" tournament consisting of their all time greats. With the access of social media (facebook, twitter, instagram), the Virtual All-Time NYS Tournament should be a huge hit and possibly end the argument of "Best of all-time"

This bracket style tournament will include each wrestler who placed top 4 from 1963-1973, top 6 from 1974-2019 and top 8 from 2020. The weights were condensed to 18 in total due to the differences throughout the history of the NYS tournament. The weights are as follows:

Weight 1: 91-95
Weight 2: 96-98-99
Weight 3: 103-105-106-107
Weight 4: 112-113-115
Weight 5: 119-120-123
Weight 6: 125-126-127
Weight 7: 130-132
Weight 8: 133-135-137
Weight 9: 138-140
Weight 10: 145
Weight 11: 152-154-155
Weight 12: 160-165
Weight 13: 167-170-171
Weight 14: 175-177-180-182
Weight 15: 185-189-195
Weight 16: 215-220
Weight 17: 250-HWT
Weight 18: 275-285-UNL

How to advance:
Win and advance is the goal. Each 6th place finisher (7th and 8th place in 2020 also) will be placed in their respective bracket with an allotted number of wrestlers advancing to the 5th place bracket. The process continues with an allotted numbers of wrestlers advancing into the 4th place bracket, then the 3rd place bracket. 

Lastly, which ever wrestlers advance from those 4 brackets will be place in the 1st-2nd place bracket making one huge bracket that will consist of nearly 150 wrestlers in some cases. Ultimately, one wrestler will be crowned the greatest NYS Champion of All-Time in the end.

Each bracket (6th-5th-4th-3rd and Championship) will be drawn at random. The Championship (1st-2nd Bracket) bracket will be full wrestle backs once the bracket reaches 16 wrestlers. Of course, the top 8 will earn All-State Status in the history of the New York State Tournament.

The best part about this entire virtual NYS Tournament is the fans! Each bout, yes there are a lot, will be voted on the by the fans. You can choose to vote on specific matches or vote on them all. You will have a hand in who comes out on top!

Brackets will be posted so you can follow right along. Each match will be available to vote on for a pre-determined period of time. Once the time ends, the wrestler with the highest percentage of votes advances, plain and simple. 

Each weight will have their own respective page (click the link below) where you can vote and view brackets.

This is an excellent opportunity to relive the glory days and combine them with some of our most recent greats. It will cause a multitude of discussions between fans near and far.

THAT'S NOT ALL! Team scores will be kept as well! Scores will accumulate from the 6th place bracket all the way through until the end. The percentage of votes in each match will play a huge role in team scoring.

90% or higher - Fall (2 team points)
80%-89% - Technical Fall (1.5 team points)
70%-79% - Major Decision (1 team point)
51%-69% - Decision
Advancement: 2 points
Advancement on the backside (1st-2nd Bracket): 1 Point
Placement points: Top 8 of 1st-2nd place bracket
