    Jordan Burroughs wins Dan Hodge Trophy | WIN Magazine

    excerpt

    ?It?s unprecedented to have a year where there?s five legitimate Hodge Trophy candidates. We?re extremely excited about Burroughs winning the award because of who he is as a person and for how hard he works to dominate every opponent,? said WIN Publisher Bryan Van Kley. ?Burroughs has that ?X factor? which makes him stand out as the wrestler who?s in a league of his own and his numbers this season back that up.?

    Jordan Oliver, a sophomore from Oklahoma State who finished 29-0 en route to the 133-pound title, finished as a close runner-up for the award on the strength of his 11 pins. Crowd-favorite Anthony Robles (36-0) of Arizona State finished third by a razor-thin margin after pilling up an amazing 24 tech falls and beating last year?s NCAA champ Matt McDonough of Iowa by six points in the NCAA finals.

    Finishing in fourth place for this year?s award was Jon Reader of Iowa State. The Michigan native was 39-0 while capturing the salty 174-pound title. The other finalist was Kellen Russell of Michigan who was 38-0 in the loaded 141-pound class, particularly in his Big Ten Conference.

    Why they describe the 174-pound title as "salty"?
    "Now class, I'd like for you to transition from downward dog....straight to FULL BRING!!!"

    Congrats to the board that decides who wins the Hodge. Jordan Burroughs deserved this award hands down. He absolutely destroyed everyone in his way at NCAA's. Congrats Jordan well done sir.
