The Weber wrestling family in Montana had a perfect year when it came to state high school wrestle titles - 3 for 3.  Brothers Brandon, Luke and Matt, who wrestle for Forsyth High School in Montana finished with a combined 168-2 record this year with all three winning Montana B-C individual state championships for their dad Scott, who is the team's head coach.

All three Weber brothers will be making the trek east later this month to take part in the 25th Annual NHSCA National High School Wrestling Championships in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Brandon Weber, who will wrestle in the NHSCA Senior Nationals, is Montana's all-time leader in wins and a three-time state champ.  He finished 56-0 this season, winning the last 134 matches of his career. His overall record in high school is 200-9.

Matt Weber, who will wrestle in the NHSCA Junior Nationals, may be able to top his brother's all-time wins record next year.  In February, Matt won the Montana Class B-C 126-pound title with a 55-2 mark. He'll enter his senior season with an overall record of 147-9. Matt will have a chance to become a four-time state champ during the 2014-15 season.

And, if Matt breaks Brandon's record, it may be Luke Weber, a sophomore this year, who will top both of them.  Matt won his second straight state title this year with a 57-0 record. He's won 81 straight matches and owns an overall record of 104-4.

The trio's dad Scott Weber is a Forsyth grad won his own state title and finished runner-up twice in his high school career.  After graduation Scott trained for two years at the U.S. Olympic Training Center and then went-on to become a Navy SEAL for five years in the 80's.

The Weber wrestle tradition will last many more years with 8th grader Nathan and 7th grader Michael waiting in the wings.

Registration for the year's silver anniversary event that will be held March 27th through the 30th is open at
