Oklahoma State wrestling standout Chris Perry has been named the 2014 Big 12 Wrestling Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
The education major posted a 3.21 grade point average while going 30-1 and winning the 174-pound national title in his senior year.
Perry helped lead the Cowboys to a Big 12 team title and third-place finish at the NCAA Wrestling Championships in Oklahoma City last month.
He ended his career as a four-time Big 12 champion, a three-time All-American, and a two-time national champion at 174 pounds. He is tied for ninth on the Cowboys’ all-time wins list with a career record of 122-11, and was also a four-time high school state champion at Stillwater.
OSU coach John Smith, who is Perry’s uncle, was named Big 12 Coach of the Year last month. It was the 11th time Smith has received the honor.
