FloWrestler of the Week: Bryce Rogers, FL

Rob Preston Bryce Rogers.jpg

Bryce Rogers shared the headlines as one of nine Florida state champions for Lake Highland Prep last season. Now, he's asserting himself as a serious force on the national scene going into this year. This past weekend at Super 32, Rogers, a Brown University commit, knocked off No. 3 Jake Allar in the finals and used a Peterson to fuel a 10-3 win over No. 6 Anthony Mantanona in the semifinals.

Rogers was solid the entire weekend in Greensboro, North Carolina, and admitted that it was his lack of knowledge about the 170-pound field that pushed him throughout his title run.  

Listen below to Rogers' post-finals interview:

Coming into the tournament, Rogers was ranked 14th in the country and was a bit of an unknown. But after his seven-point handling of Mantanona in the semifinals and his jaw dropping duck unders against Allar, Rogers has certainly elevated his stock.

It was his consistency and persistent push for the belt, coupled with some badass ducks, that make Bryce Rogers our FloWrestler of the Week.

Other FloWrestler of the Week Nominees:

Patrick Mckee (MN) - After losing in round of 16, he won six matches on the backside.
