Cornell's Adam Frey named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week



Adam Frey (Pittsburgh, Pa./Cornell University) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for Dec. 26-Jan. 1.

Each week, TheMat.com will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level. The announcement will be made each week on Wednesday.

Competing in his first college tournament, Frey knocked off the No. 1, 2 and 4 seeds en route to winning the 133-pound title at the Southern Scuffle on Dec. 30 in Greensboro, N.C.

The eighth-seeded Frey, a sophomore at Cornell University, beat No. 1 seed and No. 2 nationally ranked Matt Keller of Tennessee-Chattanooga 10-9 in the quarterfinal round. He followed with a 10-9 semifinal win over No. 4 seed Joe Baker of Navy and beat No. 2 seed Evan Sola of North Carolina 4-2 in the finals.

Individual championships by Frey and NCAA runner-up Troy Nickerson (125) lifted the Big Red to a third-place finish behind No. 1 Missouri and No. 2 Minnesota at the Southern Scuffle.

Frey is a sophomore academically, but he still has four years of eligibility remaining including this season. He did not compete last year for Cornell because of an injury. Frey is now ranked ninth nationally by Wrestling International Newsmagazine.

Frey was the nation's top-ranked recruit at 130 pounds following his prep career at Blair Academy. He won Junior Nationals in freestyle and Greco-Roman in 2005.
