BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Senior captain Paul Young earned his second career Big Ten Wrestler of the Week recognition on Tuesday (Nov. 31). The Bloomington, Ind., native led Indiana to three wins at the Hoosier Duals on Saturday.

The sixth-ranked 157-pounder notched two pins and a decision in his three bouts at the competition. Young began the day by pinning UNC-Greensboro's Jonathan Rodebaugh in 36 seconds, earning six points en route to a 34-12 Indiana win. He followed with another pin in 2:04 against Old Dominion's Micah Blair, helping the Hoosiers earn a 22-13 win against the Monarchs. Young then closed out his day with a 10-3 decision over 19th-ranked Bryan Deutsch of Northern Illinois in a 22-18 Indiana win. The three dual wins pushed the Hoosiers' 2010 record to 6-0.

Young and the rest of the Hoosier Wrestling team are headed west this weekend (Dec. 3-4), competing in the 29th Annual Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational
