FloWrestler of the Week: Anthony Ashnault, Rutgers

FloWrestler of the Week: Anthony Ashnault, Rutgers

The upsets and the great performances keep on rolling in and this week it was Anthony Ashnault that put on the best one.

The New Jersey phenom put in an undefeated record at the Journeymen/ASICS Northeast Duals with wins over Oklahoma’s Trae Blackwell, Trevor Jauch of UNI and most importantly over #2-ranked Evan Henderson of North Carolina. When Ashnault, who came in sporting a #7 ranking, met up with Henderson he dictated the match on their feet with a slick ankle pick and a very nice double to go up 4-2 at the end of the second period along with racking up over a minute of riding time.

Ashnault then gained an escape less than 5-seconds into the final period before playing defense and giving up a takedown in the final seconds to get the 6-4 win after getting the riding time point.

Ashnault wrestled aggressively and he wrestled smart in order to get the upset and because of his great performance he is our FloWrestler of the Week.
