2023 Dan Hodge Trophy Rankings

Better late than never! The FloWrestling Dan Hodge Trophy Award rankings are back as we head into the final two months of the college wrestling season. Who are the favorites? Who are the contenders? Who are the dark horses? What conference will the winner come from? If you're looking for some clues, our pound-for-pound ranking is a great place to start. As a reminder, however, the Dan Hodge Trophy has set criteria to determine who the winner should be.

Hodge Trophy Voting Criteria:

1 – Record

2 – Dominance/Bonus-Point Percentage

3 – Quality of Competition

4 – Sportsmanship

The return of the NWCA All-Star Classic added an extra wrench into things with the matches not going on official records. While I did not include the matches on wrestlers' records, I did punish Quincy Monday for losing to David Carr at the event as the Hodge is awarded based on votes and voters will likely be influenced by the outcome of that match. I also did not include any medical forfeits and/or injury defaults as they can skew bonus point numbers.
