We kick off the second season of The Guillotine Grapevine by heading down to Apple Valley and talking with two-time Cadet world champion Gable Steveson.

Already a two-time state champion and three-time state finalist, Steveson brings an impressive 128-3 record into his junior year for the Eagles. Having clinched a state dual championship with his performance as a freshman, Steveson is fine with pressure and takes every match the same.

Steveson talks about settling in Minnesota, why he's striving to be the best and of course, growing up wrestling with a name like Gable Dan Steveson.

Episode 16 of The Guillotine Grapevine heads over to Augsburg College as two-time U.S. World Team member Jake Clark ran some visiting German wrestlers through a short practice. There's a tie with the Germans and why they're here in Minnesota training for a week and it's not necessarily what you might think.

The Germans also had an opportunity to talk with Olympic wrestler and coach Alan Rice as he joined the practice in the wrestling room named in his honor. We also catch up with German coach Marcel Fornoff and Anthony Sanders. It's Sanders' father who is a Minnesota native and former St. Cloud State wrestler.

They'll work out at PINnacle and Takedown up in Brainerd before heading back.

Episode 12 of The Guillotine Grapevine rocks some historic talk as Apple Valley's Mark Hall made history winning his sixth individual state championship to go along with six team championships.

Before we get to Hall, we caught up with St. Michael-Albertville's Mitchell McKee after he won his third championship, stepping on the mat a few weights after his brother Patrick claimed the crown at 106 pounds. Following McKee, we talked with New Prague's Griffin Parriott, who wowed the XCel Energy Center crowd with a 10-second fall in the state championship in AA.

Then we get to Hall, who answered questions from loads of TV stations and newspapers. He talked about the goals he had coming in to beat Destin McCauley's five individual titles and six team titles as well as wrestling with his future college coach Cael Sanderson in attendance.

We also got a few minutes with Sanderson and he gave his impressions about the quality and atmosphere at the Minnesota State Championships.

Episode 11 of The Guillotine Grapevine features one of the top wrestling journalists in the country, Ben Pherson from the Rochester Post-Bulletin.

Ben talks about how he gets the right stories to tell in the paper and how he's taken his passion for wrestling and worked it into his day-to-day job at the paper. Ben's got an interesting backstory, but the Minnesota State Championships have been a big part of it throughout his career.

With newspapers constantly downsizing and sacrificing coverage for more national, cookie-cutter types of content, Ben's providing the local and state community with great features and coverage. We sit and chat with Ben, get off topic at times, but have some fun.
