Trent Paulson named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for Nov. 10-16



Trent Paulson (Ames, Iowa/Sunkist Kids) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for Nov. 10-16.

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.

Paulson put on a show for the packed house of 1,000 fans at the Chicago Cup, overpowering Russia's Arsen Mairov with an array of big moves to win 8-1, 8-4 at 66 kg/145.5 lbs.

Paulson was named the meet's Outstanding Wrestler as the U.S. team dropped a close 4-3 decision to the freestyle team from Russia. It was Paulson's first match since he suffered a disappointing first-round loss at September's World Championships.

The burly Paulson used a succession of chest locks and throws, and mixed in a blast double-leg takedown, in turning in a dominating performance at Wright College. Mairov placed second at Russian Nationals in 2009.

Paulson's twin brother, Travis, also won his match in the dual meet at 74 kg/163 lbs.
