And the nominees are (sorted alphabetically):
Tristan Daugherty, Sr, Peoria Notre Dame, 126 – Broke the school record for wins on Saturday at the Big 12 conference duals with 162 varsity wins. A 3x Class 2A 3rd place finisher and University at Buffalo commit, Daugherty is unbeaten on the season and ranked #1 in Class 1A at 126 pounds.
Fidel Mayora, Sr, Montini, 145 – Avenged his loss to #1 ranked Connor Gaynor of Mt Carmel in the finals of the Chicago Catholic League Championships and was named OW of the tournament. Mayora is a 3x state placer and 2x state runner-up.
Lloyd Reynolds, Sr, Edwardsville, 285 – Beat the Missouri Class 4 state runner-up and the returning Class 4 5th place finisher in what was arguably the hardest bracket at the Columbia Hickman tournament this past weekend. Reynolds, a returning state placer, has only one in-state loss on the season and that was a 3-1 overtime loss to Ryan Boersma in the Dvorak finals.
