Oconomowoc is coming off three consecutive WLT dual-meet titles and returns one of the best wrestlers in the state in senior Brett Samson (second place at 220 pounds last season). Samson has won 118 matches in three seasons and has lost just 18. This year, Samson is expected to compete at 220 and is the No. 1-ranked wrestler in that class in Division 1, according to Wisconsin Wrestling Online.
Samson is also an accomplished football player and was named first-team All State as a tight end/fullback.
“He’s in very, very good shape,” wrestling coach Steve Olson said. “I think he’s worked really hard during football season. He brought other kids with him up to that weight room, conditioning alone by themselves to make sure they were ready to go both ways on the football field.”
