Kevin Timothy is Wrestler of the Week

Kevin, Timothy, a senior at Brandon, is back as the Top Wrestler in the 140-pound class in Florida . Timothy returns to the spot that he has held from the beginning of the season after an impressive win at the Ippolito tourney last week in Brandon. Timothy (45-2) had uncharacteristically lost two matches in a row including one to Carlos Montero of Bloomingdale.

Timothy, a returning state champ in Class 2A, reversed that lost to Montero with a 10-1 major decision against Montero in the finals of the 25th Annual Tony Ippolito Memorial at Brandon.

Timothy plans to attend The Citadel next year.

The rest of the Top Wrestlers in the All State category remain unchanged from Week 7.

In other weights in the All State category, there were to be a lot of votes for Earl Hall of South Dade at 103, Kyle Grueninger of Countryside at 119, Matt Nereim of Winter Springs at 130 and Donovan Green of Timber Creek at 285.

In the Class categories, a few changes,

No changes

CLASS 2A

103 – Brayton Logan of North Ft Myers holds onto his top spot but there were a lot of votes for Richie Bliss of Springstead who won the Ippolito.

125 – Jacob Gregory of Manatee, a two-time state runner-up, takes over as he won the Ippolito. Tyler Liberatore, who remains unbeaten, was unable to compete in the same event due to illness.

152 – Wally Figaro of Brandon had a great week. First he received his "Stop-sign" trophy for winning the National Championship in the USA Wrestling Cadet Greco-Roman competition at Fargo , ND , last summer. Then he wins the Ippolito. In the semifinals, Figaro (43-4) handed Ben Carter of Naples Barron Collier with his first loss of the season, a 4-2 decision.

160 – Kyle Koziel (41-6) of Brandon takes over as he settled the issue on the mat in the semifinals of the Ippolito with a 3-1 decision against Frank Cousins of St Cloud , last week's Top Wrestler in Class 2A.
