The Open Mat’s High School Wrestler of the Week Award powered by Adidas goes to Matthew Singleton of Woodward Academy in College Park, Georgia. Singleton, who was last ranked No. 20 at 145, wrestled up at 160 and rolled through the field at the 2019 Gulf Coast Classic to take the top spot. He ended all four of his matches inside of four minutes, picking up a tech fall in his opening match, a fall in the quarters, a fall in the semis and then, finally, a second tech fall in the finals. Singleton was a state champion as a freshman a year ago. He’s part of a crop of current Georgia sophomores who are as good as any in the country. Singleton currently finds himself ranked No. 18 overall in the Class of 2022 recruiting class rankings.
Congratulations to Matthew Singleton, TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week.
