Wrestling: Coleman Scott earns honor
Oklahoma State senior 133-pounder Coleman Scott is this week’s Big 12 Wrestler of the Week, the conference office announced today.
Scott claimed wins over a pair of top-10 opponents last week to lead the Cowboys to victories over two teams that were both ranked No. 1 at one point of this season when he handed No. 7 Nick Fanthorpe of Iowa State a 6-2 defeat as part of OSU’s 16-15 win over the No. 9 Cyclones last Friday, then came back to beat No. 5 Mack Reiter of Minnesota by a convincing 8-2 decision as part of the Cowboys’ 18-14 win over the No. 4 Gophers on Sunday.
Including those two wins, Scott has won 18 consecutive matches, highlighted by five wins over top-10 opposition. Four of Scott’s last six wins have come over opponents ranked in the top 10 nationally. On the year, the three-time All-American owns a 24-2 record to go with a 15-1 mark in duals.
For all of the success that Scott has achieved in his career, this is the first time he has been honored as the Big 12 Wrestler of the Week. He joins teammate Jake Dieffenbach as Cowboys to have earned the honor this season, as Dieffenbach secured the recognition the week of Dec. 3-9.
Scott’s honor marks the 29th time an Oklahoma State wrestler has been recognized as Big 12 Wrestler of the Week since the conference formed in 1996-97.
The Cowboys are on the road this week, competing at Oregon on Feb. 8 and at UC Davis on Feb. 10.
