Group Description


The phrase "heavyweight champ" carries a lot of weight the world of sports... especially in college wrestling.

This Yahoo group honors the best of the big men of college wrestling in the 21st century. (It's an extension of the original "NCAA Heavyweight Champs" group which will now be limited to the heavyweight title-winners from 1928 up to 2000.) Shown here -- two champs of the new millenium: Tommy Rowlands of Ohio State (scarlet and grey singlet), titlist in 2002 and 2004... and Steve Mocco, who won the title in 2003 for Iowa, and in 2005 at Oklahoma State. Others honored in this group: 2001 champ John Lockhart, 2006 and 2007 titlist Cole Konrad, 2008 champ Dustin Fox, 2009 titlewinner Mark Ellis, 2010 champ David Zabriskie, 2011 heavyweight titlist Zach Rey, and 2012-2013 champ Tony Nelson.

As with the original, at this Yahoo group you'll find...
