This week’s Adidas High School Wrestler of the Week award recipient is Will Betancourt of Manheim Central in Manheim, Pennsylvania. Betancourt, a two-time state placewinner and a rising senior, went 4-0 over the weekend at Waterway Duals to help Team Nauman Purple to a championship. Betancourt picked up a pin, a major and two decision victories along the way. His most impressive performance came in a 2-1 win over New Jersey state champion and third-ranked Eddie Ventresca. Betancourt will be one of the favorites to compete for the Class 3A state title this year in Pennsylvania and has already committed to wrestle in college at Lock Haven.
Congratulations to Will Betancourt, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week.
