Boys P4P: Cabanban ends season on top

Corey Cabanban of Saint Louis is the top boys wrestler in the final pound-for-pound rankings for 2016-17. He is followed by (2) Iolani's KJ Pascua, (3) Micah Tynanes of Campbell, (4) Iolani's Dane Yamashiro and (5) Campbell's Zayren Terukina.

Corey Cabanban of Saint Louis ends the wrestling season atop the pound-for-pound rankings after sweeping through states on his way to his third title. He will undoubtedly begin his quest for No. 4 atop the rankings next year.

Cabanban had his share of opposition during his run, beating Mililani’s Casey Nitta 2-0 before being pushed a little bit by Moanalua’s Logan Garcia in the final. He wasn’t alone, each of the top wrestlers endured a few nervous moments during the tournament.

‘Iolani’s Dane Yamashiro rises to his rightful place in the fourth spot after pinning his way though the tournament. Only Leilehua’s Brett Barefoot was as dominating.

The top 10 is largely made up of boys who swept the three major tournaments, winning states, league and Officials.

The biggest drop involved Kapolei’s Jayson Pagurayan, who suffered an injury at the worst possible time but still gutted out a sixth-place finish to become the first in Hurricanes history to place at states four times.

As always, these rankings are completely subjective.

  1. Joshua February 23, 2017 2:17 pm

    How does Garcia drop so low when he just beat Santos and his lost was against the number 1 p4p?

  2. Noname February 23, 2017 3:32 pm

    He lost to Pagurayan and Nitta from Mililani who isn’t ranked

  3. RickJames February 23, 2017 6:00 pm

    He was ranked way to high to start and had multiple losses. Bumping up two weight classes is not easy, he also lost badly in the finals and did not look compeitive.

    Not to much people believe that he could beat a healthy Pagurayan.

    He is lucky to be ranked

  4. Saberz February 23, 2017 6:06 pm

    I thought Garcia did great considering he went up two weight classes and avenged both of those defeats . Not to mention he hasn’t even turned 16 yet and corey who is awesome is already 18 . And I do think the 120 division was best in state this year.

  5. Joshua February 23, 2017 6:11 pm

    He didn’t lose badly he lost to the best in the state in my opinion . He could of stayed at 113 and easily won or maybe even went up to 126 like the other boy and had a better shot . But he went to face the best and I have a lot of respect for that . Dosnt happen very often . I look forward to watching all these awesome athletes next season.

  6. Noah February 23, 2017 6:33 pm

    Where is Ruiz at on this??

  7. RickJames February 23, 2017 7:22 pm

    Bull Crap!

    If he wanted to got to 113 than Go! He got beaten like a drum…Not sure what you was watching but it was not impressive at all, Pagaruyan would of done way better. He beat a cripple to win OIA. Unfair to say “IF” he did this or that, the champ at 113 is no joke give him credit. I feel he would do the same, he lucked out on getting to the finals. Age does not matter, you can make excuses all you like but guess what they will graduate the same year.

  8. HImatside February 23, 2017 7:47 pm

    Great job by HPW for the coverage of wrestling, if not for you guys their would be none. Ruiz had a bad injury if not I believe he’d be on the list somewhere. All state champs deserve their ranking but all List are always subjective and rightly so, good for discussion. True P4P Will usually come from lighter weights! Next year will be exciting with Cabanban, Garcia, Cooper, Terukinas ect. KEEP UP THE COVERAGE!

  9. Noah February 23, 2017 7:57 pm

    I’m just saying gotta hand it too the kid, he tore his ACL in Maui but still was able too place top 4 at State, and the kid dislocated his elbow right before OIAs. He’s not even ranked here, crazy.

  10. QuietThinker February 24, 2017 7:50 am

    Well first off SHAME ON YOU
    RickJames for calling any wrestler a cripple. How dare you speak that way!! These wrestlers get on and off the mat each and every week to compete for their family and friends and we all should be proud of each and every one of them.

    Second, Garcia did pin Paguryan for an OIA title with ONE hurt/injured ankle. But remember this, Cabanban also Pinned Paguryan at states in the semis with TWO hurt/injured ankles. So you need to get your facts before opening your mouth!!

    Third, credit is always given when credit is due. You cannot take away the fact that once a state champ, always a state champ!

    Always wish for the best and keep positive vibes!!


  11. RickJames February 24, 2017 1:13 pm

    1.cause (someone) to become unable to move or walk properly

    The guy came in on crutches, crawled to the middle of the mat and let it fly but in no way was he 100%; he was a cripple.

    The difference, that was not the first time Cabanban beat Paguarayan

    Like I said jumping up two weight classes is no easy task.

  12. 808matworxs February 24, 2017 8:24 pm

    I think that you guy’s are doing a great job at hawaii prep world with updates and stat’s throughout the wrestling season. I think that 195# Agao (MOA) should be considered on the p4p list he did defeat MIRZA (KAM) p4p ranked 22 and came in second for MIT, OIA, and STATES

    Congrats to those that won a state title but the meaning of P4P Is the absolute best regardless of class or title. 195# class has been the weakest this year. With 120 being the toughest both Cabanban & Garcia beat 126# champ Santos. also 126 was also pretty tough with Santos landing there, next would be 132#.

    As true as that may be the p4p top 25 still has 3 wrestlers that are from 195# class, but yes everyone is free to there own opinion. I always thought that if the wrestler placed higher than his or her opponents in the “state tournament” than they should at least be considered ranked higher.
