OKC POW: Mike Anderson, NWC
The Oklahoma City Player of the Week this week is Northwest wrestler Mike Anderson. Anderson, a senior, wrestled all of last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. The injury hampered him at times throughout the season, including in the state tournament.
After offseason surgery, Anderson has come back to become one of the favorites in Class 5A at 215 pounds.
In last week’s regionals, Anderson pinned Deer Creek’s Alex Christensen at 3:50 to win the region and earn the West’s No. 1 seed.
At the state tournament beginning Friday, Anderson (30-3) will start off his quest for a title against Grove’s Weston Culvey.
Anderson’s brother, Antwan, was a state champion wrestler for Capitol Hill.
