2022 Division I runner-up Bodi Harris of Jesuit did fine at 120 lbs. in the 2022 part of the 2022-23 season.  He won the Gulf Coast Clash, which included a win over Catholic's Grant Grizzaffi.  He won the South Walton Border Wars with wins over Cole Mire of St. Paul and Landon Smith of Holy Cross prior to a finals win over an Alabama 7A runner-up.  His problem at 120 lbs., though, was Sam Houston's Tyson Roach.  Harris lost to Roach at the Warrior Open and the Zachary Big Horse, but only by four and five points, as opposed to the 16-4 major decision Roach put on him in the 2022 Division I 106 lbs. finals.  Roach would not be a problem for Harris at state, but two other Division I wrestlers had defeated Roach.  Getting out of it, if possible, was "the smart move," as Tessio would have thought because he was smarter than Clemenza.

Harris dropped to 113 lbs. on December 29th for a forfeit against Basile, and then won the Battle of New Orleans on January 7th.  At the LACL he pinned his first two opponents, and just controlled his next two opponents.  Controlling opponents is what Harris does.  No Louisianian scored more than six points against him save Roach.  Rummel sophomore Kaiden Triche was no cakewalk for Harris in the finals, so do not be fooled by the fall Harris recorded.  The Raider was seeded third, but a lot of people were surprised he got past #6 Kael Reaux of Southside with a second period fall.  And then he dominated #2 Grant Grizzaffi 10-2 to make the finals.  Against Harris, he proved a little more annoying than last season, in which Harris scored one fall over Triche between 6-2 and 7-3 decisions.  This match was tied 3-3 after the first period.  After the second Harris was ahead 7-5 as both wrestlers earned takedowns but Harris netted two escapes as well.  The third period was close, but Harris controlled the action until he was able to catch Triche on his back for a 5:40 fall.  It was a great showing by both wrestlers, and probably earned them top-seeds at the state championships in Division I (Harris) and Division II (Triche).
