As we wrap up folkstyle season, we’ve got one final folkstyle winner of the Adidas High School Wrestler of the Week. This time around, the award goes to Jake Stiles of Montini Catholic in Lombard, Illinois. Stiles, the No. 5 wrestler in the country at 152 lbs and a top 100 recruit in the class of 2019, took out the fourth ranked wrestler in the nation and fellow top 100 recruit Sam Dover at the 2019 Cliff Keen Dream Team Classic. Stiles, representing Team Illinois, topped Team USA’s Dover 4-2 in sudden victory. The best part? The two are set to be teammates in college as they’ll both wrestle for Lou Rosselli at The University of Oklahoma. Video of the match can be found here.
Congratulations to Jake Stiles, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week.
