The MyHOUSE Sports Gear Wrestler of the Week is William Gockel-Figge of NYU. Gockel-Figge won a pair of matches at McDaniel’s Grapple on the Hill including a 2-1 decision over #4 ranked 2x NCAA qualifier Kyle Diesel of Wilkes at 184. In his other bout, Gockel-Figge earned a first period fall against Greensboro.
Gockel-Figge, a junior from Simi Valley, California, came to NYU for the second semester of the 2014-2015 season. That fall, he was the California State Junior College champion for Fresno City College and came to New York for the second half of the year. He was 12-4 at 197 and 285 last year for NYU and is currently 8-0 at 184 this season, giving him a career record at NYU of 20-4. NYU is done with competition for a few weeks but will be back on the mat for the Citrus Invitational in Fort Lauderdale December 29-30.
