Ohio State wrestler Kollin Moore finished just shy of taking home the most coveted award in college wrestling. The Dan Hodge Trophy goes to the best collegiate wrestler yearly and is often called the Heisman of the sport.
And while Moore received three first-place votes, he was beaten out by Iowa’s Spencer Moore for the 2020 recognition. Still, it was an impressive season for the Buckeyes’ 197 pounder who went 27-0. Those wins included 10 major decisions, six tech falls, and four pins.
Moore won the Big Ten Championship and was set to go into the NCAA Tournament as the No. 1 seed at his weight class. That was before everything was canceled out of an abundance of caution with the COVID-19 health crisis.
Congratulations are in order for a warrior on the mat Ohio State wrestling fans won’t soon forget.
