STILLWATER, Okla. - Oklahoma State 197-pound wrestler Clayton Foster will round out the Cowboy trio competing at the 2010 NWCA All-Star Classic in Fresno, Calif., on Nov. 21, it was announced today. Foster will tangle with returning All-American Sonny Yohn of Minnesota at the event and he joins 133-pounder Jordan Oliver and 285-pounder Alan Gelogaev in representing Oklahoma State that day.
Foster and Yohn have met once before, with Foster rolling to a 13-1 major decision victory as part of the Cowboys' 21-8 dual match victory over the Golden Gophers last season. Going back to high school, Foster bested Yohn in a three-period final at 189 pounds at the USA Wrestling Junior Freestyle Nationals in 2006. Yohn won the Junior Nationals the next season.
The 45th Annual NWCA All-Star Classic Presented by The Marines will be held at the Selland Arena in Fresno, California on Sunday, November 21, 2010.
