INDIANAPOLIS — Vinny Corsaro didn’t know it, but he never stood a chance.

At least that’s the way Josh Farrell felt heading into his wrestling state finals championship match against the Indianapolis Cathedral junior Saturday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Farrell, a Greenfield-Central senior ranked No. 2 in the state at 152 pounds, and No. 3-ranked Corsaro met in the middle of the championship ring as the finalists in each of the 14 weight classes were introduced.

As they shook hands, Farrell met eye-to-eye with Corsaro, then Farrell turned back to G-C head coach Josh Holden with a message.

“We got done with the face-off and I looked at my coaches and I said, ‘I’ve never looked at my opponent and felt more confident in my life,’” Farrell recalled later Saturday evening from the Fieldhouse locker room. “And they were just like, ‘Good, now’s a good match to feel that way.’”

“And it wasn’t even because this is my last match, giving it all as a high schooler. It was just, ‘Let’s go get the job done.’”
