Looking back at the recently completed collegiate season, shows an outstanding group of fifteen Oklahoma high school graduates earning All-American honors in the DI, DII, NAIA or junior college national tournaments.
Led by national champions Heath Gray (Chandler) and Dalton Abney (Cascia Hall), UCO had five Oklahoma high school graduates earn All-American honors with NEO right behind with four All-Americans from Oklahoma.
In addition to Gray and Abney, Paxton Rosen (Edmond North), Brik Filippo (Tuttle) and Alex Kauffman (Vinita) earned spots on the podium to lead the Bronchos to the runner-up team trophy and their best finish since 2007.
This was not the first All-American finish for many of the wrestlers and listed below are previous All-American finishes. The 2020 national tournaments were canceled by the pandemic, but DII All-Americans were selected by the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA).
