Phil Davis named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for Nov. 13-19



Phil Davis (Harrisburg, Pa./Penn State University) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for Nov. 13-19.

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.

Davis, a three-time All-American for Penn State, is off to a strong start at 197 pounds in his senior season. He already owns wins over three opponents ranked in the top eight nationally.

The second-ranked Davis downed No. 3 Mike Tamillow of Northwestern 6-2 in the National Wrestling Coaches Association All-Star Classic on Nov. 19 in Eugene, Ore.

That win came two days after Davis notched a 12-1 major decision over Hofstra's sixth-ranked Joe Rovelli in a dual meet. Davis also beat Maryland's eighth-ranked Hudson Taylor by a 17-2 technical fall on Nov. 11.

Davis placed seventh at the NCAA Championships as a freshman in 2005 before finishing second at the NCAAs in 2006. He finished fifth in the NCAA meet as a junior this past March.

Davis entered this season with a 90-19 career record at the collegiate level.
