OK, so I haven't watched a wrestling match in person since Gene Mills and Mike Rotunda at Manley, so this may be a silly question.

What is the referee checking for at the beginning of the match when the wrestlers hold out their arms and the ref feels around their shoulders and under their arms? The only thing I can figure out is they are looking for some sort of slippery substance that would increase their chances of escaping. Is that right?

I think any wrestling videos out there of a Brandon Aviles from Long Island are NOT the SU lacrosse commit. The wrestler is older and went to John Glenn HS.

Skin check for any cuts or lesions but that ref does a lousy job.

Let me preface my post by saying that I will always root for everyone on the Syracuse lacrosse team. I want every player on the team to succeed.

If I google brandon aviles ward melville I can find a little bit about him. His name pops up enough for us to know that he plays for Ward Melville. However, further research shows that he doesn't really take face offs for WM. A different player in the same class named Michael Giaquinto (UPenn commit) takes the face offs. Further research also shows that he scored 4 points in 2018 on 3 goals and 1 assist.

Aviles may end up being a great player, but I'm confused. Maybe he plays SSDM mostly at WM. According to the box score from the NYS final he started on midfield. http://www.nysphsaa.org/Portals/0/P.../2018/New York State Class A Championship.pdf
