Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Yesterday we brought you the 2015 Lacrosse All-Name Team, featuring such standouts as Deemer Class, Addington Elliot, and Brickman House.


But one reader wrote in to contend that, while lacrosse names are great, wrestling names are even better. This reader submitted for evidence the names of the top high school wrestlers in each weight class in the state of South Dakota. The best part of these names is that they're all over the place, some funny, some cool, some weird, and some incomprehensible.

We've ranked our favorite 25, but let us know in the comments what you think, and if you know of any other sports subcultures that have great names.
