WWSport.com Wrestler of the Week: Taylor Green

The d3wrestle.com/WWSport.com Wrestler of the Week for this week is Taylor Green of King’s College.  Wrestling at 157 lbs., Green was 5-0 at the Budd Whitehill Duals to help King’s to a 5th place finish in the event.  Green’s best win at the event was a 6-2 decision over NCAA All-American Luke Miller of Ohio Northern.  Prior to the event, Miller was ranked #2 at 157 in the d3wrestle.com Individual Rankings.  Green also defeated contender Kyle Long of Trine, Colton Eyer of Lycoming, Kory Leonhard of Baldwin-Wallace, and Cory Mahoney of Cortland on his way to an undefeated weekend.  As a result of his performance, Green has moved up to #8 in the January 20th d3wrestle.com rankings.

Green, a senior from Montgomery, Maryland, is 15-4 on the season and 56-36 for his career.  He was 13-3 last season before an injury kept him from competing in the Metro Conference Championships.  This year, he is currently the 5th ranked wrestler in the Metro conference, but he is sure to move up after this past weekend’s performance.  King’s will next wrestle Thursday against Muhlenberg and Saturday at the Metro-NEWA duals.
