Cole Konrad Named Gopher Athlete of the Week

Cole Konrad, a senior heavyweight from Freedom, Wisconsin, was named Steakhouse's Gopher Athlete of the Week for the week of December 18th. Konrad extended his winning streak to 67 matches with a forfeit as the No. 1 ranked Gophers defeated the 10th-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes 29-13 Sunday to finish the dual meet season 20-1 overall and 8-0 in the Big Ten.

Cole Konrad, who won the Steakhouse's Gopher Athlete of the Week, pinned Jordan Hein in 1:41 as the Gophers defeated #9 Wisconsin 28-12 Friday night.

The victory gave Head Coach J Robinson his fifth 20-win season and his fourth unbeaten Big Ten dual meet record.

Konrad is hoping to win his second consecutive NCAA title. Konrad defeated Steve Mocco in the 2006 NCAA title match after losing to Mocco in the 2005 finals, the last time Konrad lost.

There are eleven Outback Steakhouse locations in Minnesota: Bloomington, Burnsville, Coon Rapids, Eden Prairie, Hermantown, Inver Grove Heights, Maplewood, Rochester, Roseville, St. Cloud and Woodbury.
