Oklahoma Wesleyan 2021-22 Wrestling Season Preview

Tom Carr is about to start his second complete season at Oklahoma Wesleyan and is looking to develop the foundation of his program.

“This should be a good year forward for OKWU. It will be about laying a foundation in the classroom and on the mat for many of the young wrestlers. We will look to Dailen Pressgrove, Ridge Smith, Austin Daniels to lead but also many of the sophomores to start to take their place as leaders.”

The Eagles open their season this Saturday at Little Rock
