IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa junior Sammy Brooks has been named USA Wrestling Athlete of the Week.

The Oak Park, Illinois, native used four takedowns and eight nearfall points to earn a 17-2 technical fall over Oklahoma State’s Jordan Rogers at the “Grapple on the Gridiron” on Nov. 14.

Brooks’ bonus points at 184 pounds gave Iowa a 15-13 lead and proved to be the difference in the Hawkeyes’ 18-16 win over the top-ranked Cowboys.

Each week USA Wrestling selects an Athlete of the Week based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the senior level.
