If that’s the case, why hasn’t anybody figured out how to score on him?
Sharp hasn’t allowed a single point in the tournament as he heads into today’s finals.
“I’m flustered,” Sharp said. “I didn’t think I’d make it to the finals like this.”
Some of the attempts to score on the 6-foot-6, 280-pound Sharp almost look comical. Take his quarterfinal match against Indian Creek’s Sam Robinson on Friday. Thirty-six seconds into the match, the pair found themselves chest-to-chest standing straight up. Sharp began to lean forward, Robinson’s legs buckled and he went splat on his back. Sharp got the pin.
He’ll see a familiar face in the finals: Canfield’s Mason Giordano. While Sharp has defeated him four times in his career, that development brings him no peace. All of their matches have been low-scoring affairs. Their most recent meeting — the district final in Alliance — saw Sharp take a 1-0 victory.
