This week’s Adidas High School Wrestler of the Week award goes to Cohlton Schultz of Ponderosa High School in Parker, Colorado. Schultz had a fantastic weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina at the World Team Trials. Competing in the Senior men’s Greco-Roman challenge tournament, he went 3-0 with two technical falls and a fall to make the best two out of three finals against multiple-time world and Olympic team representative Robby Smith. After dropping the first match 2-1, Schultz came back to win the second match 2-1 to even the series and then widened the margin in the final match to win 5-1 and take the series. He advances to Final X: Lincoln where he’ll take on world silver medalist Adam Coon for the spot on the 2019 senior world team. Schultz, a senior, is the No. 3 overall recruit in the class of 2019 and will continue his career in college at Arizona State University.
Congratulations to Cohlton Schultz, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week.
