Franklin Regional alum Spencer Lee has won the prestigious Dan Hodge Trophy as the most dominant collegiate wrestler in the country for the second season in a row.
Lee finished the 2021 season with a 12-0 record for the Iowa Hawkeyes and finished this month with his third NCAA title at 125 pounds.
Lee finished his national title while wrestling with a torn ACL, an injury that has caused him to withdraw from the US Olympic Trials. Iowa also won the team title.
This season, Lee shared the award as a co-winner along with Minnesota heavyweight Gable Stevenson, just the second time the Hodge committee has split its award. The trophy is voted on by a panel of former winners, retired coaches and national media members.
Lee is one of just five individuals to win the trophy more than once.
