    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 or university.


  WrestlingReport, under the direction of Bruce Closson, today announced that the Pennsylvania Collegiate Wrestler of the Year for the 2010 season is Jarrod King, a graduate student at Edinboro University.  Mr. King, from Connellsville, Pennsylvania, also won the WR.com award last season.
