This week’s Adidas High School Wrestler of the Week award recipient is Drew Eller of Evans High School in Evans, Georgia. Eller, an undefeated three-time state champion in Georgia, ripped through the 138-pound bracket this past week at Georgia’s Super 32 Early Entry Tournament. After a relatively slow start and a 9-4 win in the opening round, Eller went fall, tech, tech, fall to reach the finals. In the finals he hardly broke a sweat, notching another pin in just 35 seconds. Eller, who is currently an honorable mention in the 138-pound Open Mat Rankings, has already given a verbal commitment to wrestle at Lander University in South Carolina at the next level. The 2019-20 season will be the first for the Lander University program.
Congratulations to Drew Eller, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week.
