Pennsylvania Collegiate Wrestler for the 2006 Season


   At the conclusion of each college wrestling season, WrestlingReport.com selects its Pennsylvania Collegiate Wrestler of the Year.  This annual recognition goes to a wrestler who is both a Pennsylvania native and competed for a Pennsylvania college.

   Today, Bruce Closson, owner of WrestlingReport.com, announced that the Pennsylvania Collegiate Wrestler of the Year for the 2006 season is Phil Davis, a sophomore from Harrisburg, who competed this season at 197 pounds for Penn State University.

   Mr. Davis wrestled very well the whole year, then had two late-season tournament highlights - winning the 2006 Big Ten title and placing second at the Division I NCAA Tournament held mid March in Oklahoma City.  Davis completed the 2006 season with an excellent won/lost record of 25-4.

   Congratulations to Phil Davis, WrestlingReport.com’s Pennsylvania Collegiate Wrestler of the Year for 2006.  Past winners of this WR.com recognition were:  Edinboro University’s Josh Koscheck for the 2001 wrestling season; Lehigh University team mates Rob Rohn and Jon Trenge (tie vote) for 2002; Lehigh University’s Troy Letters for both 2003 and 2004; and Pitt-Johnstown’s Thad Benton for 2005.
