Iowa's Ramos earns Big Ten Wrestler of the Week


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa’s Tony Ramos was named the Big Ten’s Wrestler of the Week on Tuesday.

This weekly honor is the first of the season for the 133-pounder and the third of his career. Ramos’ earned it in large part because of his 9-0 major decision victory over then-No. 3 A.J. Schopp of Edinboro. The Glenbard North product produced two takedowns, a reversal, a pair of nearfall points, and more than a minute of riding-time to earn the win.

This is the fifth time this season that a Hawkeye has earned the weekly conference honor, more than any other school. Nick Mooreat 165 pounds earned the accolade on Jan. 29, and 157-pounder Derek St. John was recognized on Dec. 11m, 2012. Senior 125-pounder Matt McDonough has earned the honor twice this season — once on Nov. 20, 2012, and again on Feb. 5.

Ramos has posted a 20-0 record this season, which includes 18 bonus-point victories.
