Arm-Spin's US Open Awards
For freestyle only until I watch more greco matches.
Outstanding wrestler: Reece Humphery, the thrower. The "real" OW, Teyon Ware, is also a great choice but I picked Reece because Ware I think was very lucky to win his semifinal against Rushell.
Golden Plyon award: From what I've neen there was a ton of action at this year's open. With none of the winners putting in a truly boring preformance, the Pylon goes to Troy Nickerson for needing a third-period clinch to beat his own college backup. Special Anti-Pylon award goes to Jake Herbert for his wild, wide open semi and final wins.
Outstanding match: Lots of good ones to chose from. My favorite so far was the prelim bout between White and Burroughs. The 55 and 60 kg finals are also pretty good.
Best non-winner: Clearly, Cary Kolat's comeback takes this one. !5 seconds away from the title.
