Sasso Named Big Ten Wrestler of the Week


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State redshirt-sophomore Sammy Sasso was dominant on Sunday in his two matches vs. Iowa and Purdue and has been named the Big Ten Co-Wrestler of the Week.

In one of the feature matches of the day, No. 2 ranked Sasso pinned No. 5 ranked Max Murin of Iowa in the third period. He then dominated Trey Kruse of Purdue in a 22-7 tech fall to cap the day.

Sasso is now 7-0 on the season with a team-high three pins falls and one tech fall.

This is Sasso’s second Big Ten Wrestler of the Week honors. He claimed the award last year after going on the road and topping No. 1 Pat Lugo (Iowa) and No. 4 Brayton Lee (Minnesota) in the same weekend
