You can't go off of the scale, I'm top 100-85 or so in my section when I play about one tourny a month and I'm a mid-low 4.5 based off of scores with rated adults. I'm required to play 16s too as of a few months ago. But if I go by the scales, I'm like a 5.5. So clearly they can be a bit misleading. I'm guessing the kid just didn't know that you can't go off of the scale. Because one of the top 5 or so kids in missouri valley 14s is around a mid-high 5.0 I think based off of what I saw at a futures. So I just don't think someone around 75 in state at best would be that same caliber. But yeah, someone needs to come up with a better self rating system.
