For the first time, fans can vote for the winner of the Hodge Trophy, the award for the top collegiate wrestler in the nation. Four-time NCAA champion Kyle Dake, a Lansing native, is one of the five finalists, along with Oklahoma State’s Jordan Oliver, Ohio State’s Logan Stieber, Penn State’s Ed Ruth and Oklahoma’s Kendric Maple.
The fan tallies will count for two of the 42 total votes for the trophy. Last year’s winner was Penn State’s David Taylor, the opponent that Dake defeated for the 165-pound crown last Saturday night in Des Moines.
Get your votes in on Thursday because the winner will be announced on Friday!
