Wrestling: OU's Cody Brewer Named USA Wrestling Athlete of the Week

Cody Brewer, Oklahoma Sooners Wrestler
University of Oklahoma redshirt senior wrestler Cody Brewer was named TheMat.com’s USA Wrestling Athlete of the Week for Nov. 2, USA Wrestling announced Monday. Brewer’s honor comes after claiming a win at the 2015 NWCA All-Star Classic on Sunday, Nov. 1.

Trailing 12-10 late in the third period, the Kansas City, Mo., native tallied a last-second takedown in an exciting 141-pound Bedlam match for a 13-12 decision over Oklahoma State’s Dean Heil. Experimental rules were in place for the All-Star Classic, specifically a three-point takedown rule. Brewer’s performance earned him one of two outstanding wrestler awards for the event.

Brewer’s win was the first for Oklahoma in the NWCA All-Star Classic since Andrew Howe defeated Penn State’s Matt Brown in the 174-pound bout in 2013. Brewer and the Sooners will return to the mat Tuesday, Nov. 10 when OU holds its annual Red/White Scrimmage.
