Here at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall Sunday afternoon, five area wrestlers are shooting for state titles.
I'm guessing that three will walk away with hardware.
Eastern senior Rob Deutsch (41-0) has diominated the 119-pound weight class all season and there is no reason to think that he won't upend South Plainfield's Troy Heilman (36-2).
The 135- pound championship bout is a toss-up between Willingboro senior Tyler Scotton (34-1) and Camden Catholic sophomore T.J. Miller (42-0). Miller won a 3-1 overtime decision over Scotton in the Region 7 final.
A state runner-up last season like teammate Scotton, James Green (28-0) has the skill and the motivation to defeat Nick Alpher (40-2) of Paramus at 145.
At 215 Cherokee's Mike Zeuli will be happy with second place after he takes on Bound Brook bruiser Andrew Campolattano, the winningest wrestler in state history with a 174-1 career record.
Campolattano is going for his fourth dstate crown, Zeuli didn't even place in the tournament last season.
