Wrestler of the Week: Clayton Rush

Clayton Rush, a freshman 125 lb. wrestler from Coe, is the second d3wrestle.com Wrestler of the Week.  A two time Class A state champ from Aledo, Illinois, Rush has compiled a 27-2 record in his first year of college competition.  This past weekend at the NWCA National Duals, Rush was 5-0, including a win by fall over 2007 NCAA finalist and current #1 ranked Seth Flodeen of Augsburg.  For his efforts, Rush was named the Division III Outstanding Wrestler at the event.

The previous week, Rush was the champion of the Cornell Matman Invitational.  In the finals, he defeated 2007 All-American and previously #2 ranked Chris Heilman of Cornell, avenging a loss from earlier this season and garnerning Outstanding Wrestler honors at that even as well.  Rush and Coe College are back in action this Friday at home against IIAC foe Loras College.
