This week’s Adidas High School Wrestler of the Week award recipient is Brandon Bowles of Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School in Union County, New Jersey. This past weekend, Bowles won the 128-pound division of the Pin Cancer Nationals in Easton, Pennsylvania. Bowles went 4-0 in the tournament and allowed just a single point against him. He started the day with a 10-0 major decision in the round of sixteen before picking up a fall in 2:09 to put himself into the semis. In the semifinals, Bowles put together a hard-earned 7-0 victory before picking up a 5-1 win in the finals. Bowles, a rising junior, was a New Jersey district champion last year and took third in Region 4. He did not place in the single-class state tournament but appears ready to make a run at doing so in 2020.
Congratulations to Brandon Bowles, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week.
