FloWrestler of the Week: Nahshon Garrett, Cornell

FloWrestler of the Week: Nahshon Garrett, Cornell

Nahshon Garrett is never fazed.
 
And he proved that after coming back to claim the upset win and the Cliff Keen Las Vegas 133-pound title by defeating returning National Champ Cody Brewer. At one point Garrett trailed 7-2 after being lateral dropped by Brewer. But in true championship fashion, he battled back to outscore Brewer 12-2 and get the 14-9 victory.
 
Before winning the title he also recorded wins over George DiCamillo and Josh Martinez among others in the early rounds of the tournament.
 
But it was resilience and great ability to come back from a 5-point deficit that makes Nahshon Garrett our FloWrestler of the Week.
 


 
Other FloWrestler of the Week Nominees:
 



Dean Heil, Oklahoma State
– The revolving door at the top of the 141-pound weight class continues to spin with a new guy emerging as the top dog here. Heil knocked off top-ranked returning All-American Kevin Jack of NC State.




 



Micah Jordan, Ohio State
– If you didn’t know, then you know now. Micah is the real deal. He impressively took down the field which included #8-Solomon Chishko and #10-Todd Preston, who he defeated in the semifinals and finals to take home the 141-pound title at the CKLV Invite.



 



Brian Realbuto, Cornell
– Up two weights and still riding high. Realbuto is a force at 174 and it was on full display in Las Vegas as he defeated #15-Bryce Hammond, Brian Harvey and Jadaen Bernstein to make it to the top of the podium.
