The Oklahoma wrestling program boasts six returning All-Americans for the upcoming 2013-14 season, and each Tuesday leading up to the season, a different one will be highlighted. Up next is redshirt senior Nick Lester.
In his Sooner career, Lester has posted a 53-33 overall record. The 149-pounder from Eureka, Mo., finished third at the Big 12 Championship in both 2012 and 2013. As a redshirt sophomore during the 2011-12 season, Lester was named an All-American after he went 3-3 at the NCAA Championships as an automatic qualifier.
“Nick Lester’s a guy who could put the icing on the cake for this team," OU head coach Mark Cody said. "Nick knows exactly what he needs to do, and provided he does it, he has the technical skills to go very far.”
Check back next week to hear from redshirt senior Travis Rutt, who will compete for OU for the first time this season after transferring from Wisconsin.
