Hermiston senior wrestler Sam Colbray was recently ranked as the No. 1 high school wrestler in the country at the 195 pound weight class by InterMat, a national wrestling website.
InterMat analyst Josh Lowe — in charge of compiling the rankings — told the East Oregonian via email that Colbray’s “resume, ability level and the such are in my judgement the best among all wrestlers competing in the 195 pound weight class.”
Some of the honors on that resume include being a three-time state champion, 2015 NHSCA Jr. Nationals champion, three-time USA Wrestling Junior National champion in Greco-Roman (2012-2014), and a 2015 USA runner-up in freestyle and Greco-Roman.
Colbray has had a strong senior season with Hermiston, most recently leading the Bulldogs to another tournament title this past weekend — the Oregon Classic in Redmond — where he went 5-0 to lead the way.
