This week’s Adidas High School Wrestler of the Week award recipient is Jackson Murray of Staley High School in Kansas City, Missouri. Over the weekend, Murray took gold in the 125-pound high school division of the Midwest Beach Wrestling Nationals and did so in dominant fashion. He started out the tournament with a fall in 1:04 in his opening match, then one-upped himself with a fall in :45 in the quarterfinals. In the semis, Murray picked up yet another fall in 1:50 and then capped his incredible run with a pin at the 2:37 mark of the finals. Murray, a rising sophomore, was a state qualifier last year for the Falcons and will look to improve upon that finish this year.
Congratulations to Jackson Murray, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week.
