From the University of Minnesota:


Steveson named USA Wrestling Athlete of the Week after title victory



Freshman heavyweight Gable Steveson has been selected as the USA Wrestling Athlete of the Week by the body’s official website TheMat.com.



Steveson is now 13-0 after winning the championship at the tough Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational this past weekend. Steveson defeated three ranked wrestlers, two by major decisions, in the final three rounds of the tournament. He won the title with a 12-4 victory over No. 10 Tate Orndorff.



The Apple Valley, Minnesota, product opened his tournament with a fall (4:25) of Michigan’s Luke Ready. He followed that up with an 18-3 technical fall over John Borst of Virginia Tech.



Steveson’s closest match of the weekend came in a 9-3 decision over No. 14 Cory Daniel of North Carolina in the semifinals.



Already a two-time Cadet World Champion, 2017 Junior World Champion, and 2018 Junior World team member Steveson is now dominating his NCAA competition. He was also named Big Ten wrestler of the week after his home debut, a 6-2 defeat of then-No.3 Derek White.

Yes. And he should. A lot of former wrestlers I know who won national titles for the Gophers believe he can be a 4 time champion.
