Edmond North’s Talon McCollom, a junior that has committed to the Air Force Academy turned in an impressive performance recently, earning a 4th place finish in a 42 man bracket at a college open tournament.  Wrestling at 174 lbs. at the Younes Hospitality Open in Kearney, NE., McCollom advanced to the semifinals before dropping a match to the eventual champion.  Due to the six-match limit, McCollom, who went 5-1 on the day with two falls and a major decision, couldn’t wrestle his consolation finals match.
