Penn State’s Aaron Brooks Named Big Ten Co-Wrestler Of The Week

No. 2 Penn State wrestling 184-pound junior Aaron Brooks is this week’s Big Ten Co-Wrestler of the Week following some impressive performances at last weekend’s Collegiate Wrestling Duals.

This is the first time this season that the Big Ten has awarded the honor to two wrestlers in one week. Brooks shares it with Spencer Lee, Iowa’s 125-pound stud.

Brooks went 3-0 in Niceville, Fla., from December 20 to 21 to help the Nittany Lions go 3-0 at the Collegiate Wrestling Duals.

To start, Brooks overpowered No. 4 Parker Keckeisen of Northern Iowa after obtaining a second-period takedown that ultimately gave Brooks the 3-2 victory. In Brooks’ second match, the defending national champion came away with a 15-3 major decision against No. 9 Cornell. Finally, Brooks helped Penn State overcome then-No. 3 Arizona State 29-10 with a climactic pin.

After the Nittany Lions’ 3-0 run down south, they remain a perfect 8-0 on the season. Penn State will next take on Maryland at 7 p.m. on January 7 in College Park.
