Blees getting Some Props

This is a clip from Alex Steen's (of The Open Mat)
roundup of the top D1 performances of the week. Nice mentions for LaPrade, Moore and Bolen too. A link to the full article is attached.

3) Hokie High

Coming into the season, Ryan Blees, who began his career at Oklahoma State, was fighting for the starting spot at 157 for Virginia Tech. 149 seemed to be spoken for with two-time All-American Solomon Chishko returning. Then BC LaPrade emerged as a viable option at 157. Blees, who has struggled to get into the lineup throughout his college career despite being a highly sought-after recruit, seemed without a home again until, with Chishko struggling and missing quite a bit of time, he dropped to 149. Since then, he has been almost perfect. The Bismarck, North Dakota product upended sixth-ranked Troy Heilmann (North Carolina) on Saturday to run his record at the lower weight to 13-1. His teammates also stepped up around him with Brent Moore (Virginia Tech) taking down 18th ranked AC Headlee (North Carolina) at 141 and Hunter Bolen (Virginia Tech) knocking off eighth-ranked Ethan Ramos (North Carolina), 14-6 at 174. Chishko moved up to 157 and lost in overtime.
