This week’s High School Wrestler of the Week is Devin Winston of Park Hill High School in Kansas City Missouri. Winston picked up an impressive 6-2 victory over top-ranked Abe Assad at 182 pounds at FloWrestling’s Who’s Number 1 event in Bethlehem, Pa. on Sunday. Winston, who came into the event ranked sixth, used a third-period reversal and a set of back points to pick up the win. The senior was a Missouri state champion in 2017 and a runner-up in 2018 as well as a 2017 Fargo Cadet freestyle national champion. This is also his second win over Assad who is a 2017 UWW Cadet World bronze medalist. Winston’s win vaults him to the top of the new set of rankings. He is committed to wrestling in college at the University of North Carolina.
Congratulations to Devin Winston, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week
