Summer wrestling makes Winter Champs, Oklahoma wrestlers are set for big things this winter

If the saying “Summer Wrestling Makes Winter Champions” is true, then a record number of Oklahoma wrestlers are set for big things this winter!  Competing recently at “Fargo”, officially known as the 2021 US Marine Corps 16U and Junior National, Team Oklahoma crowned three national champions and earned 18 All-American honors in the most prestigious tournament of the year. 

Team Oklahoma was represented by an incredible 167 wrestlers competing in this summertime classic.  Many of the wrestlers doubled up by competing in both the freestyle and Greco tournaments as Team Oklahoma had a total of 233 entries in the week-long tournament.  Not only was this a record number of entries from Oklahoma, the total number of entries set a tournament record.  The previous record was 5,374 in 2019, but this year an astounding 5,900 wrestlers competed for the coveted “stop sign.”

Leading the way for Oklahoma were national champions Jordan Williams, Zane Donley and Oscar Williams.  Williams also earned All-American honors in Greco and was joined by Christian Forbes, KJ Evans, and Talon McCollom in earning All-American honors in both freestyle and Greco.  Other All-Americans were Treshaun Tecson, Harley Andrews, Hayden Simpson, Clayton Giddens, JJ McComas-Rogers, Layton Schneider, Erik McCown, Richard Thomas, Allison Hynes and Kaylee Davis.

Coaches making the trip to Fargo included; Hardell Moore, Kelly Henderson, Zach Randall, Albert White, Shane Roller, Andy Schneider, Tyrone Lewis, Izach Wilson, Mike Miller, Ethan Kyle, Mike Walkup, Ty Bowling, Ashton Cooper, Colby Robinson, Jay Howard, Nik Turner, Johnny Cook, Tony Cook, Nicole Tyson, Karissa Avalone, Alvie Killingsworth and Shelby Morrison.
