Daton Fix has arrived. The Cowboy went 4-0 at the Cowboy Challenge Tournament with three falls and added another pin to his record after Bedlam on Sunday. However, he stays below Gable Steveson because of Gable's superior strength of schedule.

Roman Bravo-Young jumped up five spots with a tech fall over Jordan Decatur raising his dominance score to four. Mikey Labriola moved ahead of Sebastian Rivera with a major decision over Trey Sizemore. Right below Labriola is now Ryan Deakin with his impressive 12-0 major over Brayton Lee.

Coming in at #17 and #18 is Greg Kerkvliet and Aaron Brooks respectively. Kerkvliet only be 2-0 going into Big Tens but with Gable and Mason Parris at his weight, he still has a good shot at winning the Hodge Trophy if he can dominate that bracket and the NCAA bracket. Brooks has been a major decision machine this season.

A reminder - the Dan Hodge Trophy uses seven criteria when determining the season's best wrestler. They are presented below in the order of importance. 

  1. Record

  2. Number of pins

  3. Dominance

  4. Past credentials

  5. Quality of competition

  6. Sportsmanship/citizenship

  7. Heart

Below you will find the rankings along with an explanation and some numbers. The dominance score is an average of how many team points a wrestler accrues every time they step on the mat. 

This is not a prediction or a ranking of wrestlers in pound-for-pound order as that can be found HERE. This is a ranking of who is having the best season so far following the above criteria.
