Oscar Wood (Colorado Springs, Colo./U.S. Army) has been named Wrestler of the Week for the week of June 22-28.

The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level. The announcement will be made each week on Wednesday. Wood dominated both of his matches at the 2004 Titan Games, Built by Home Depot, and was second in voting for the Ultimate Titan Award. In his first match, Wood defeated Ucha Mjavanadz of the Republic of Georgia with a first-period pin.

In his second match, Wood downed Moises Sanchez of Spain, an expected Olympic competitor, with a second-period fall helping the U.S. team to a 22-6 win.
