The LIWA Wrestler of the Week, for the week ending December 3, 2023, is 116lb sophomore, Will Russell of Manhasset HS.

Earning the top spot on the podium at the Manhasset Invitational, he defeated last season's Division 2 NYSPHSAA State Champion, Tommy Aiello of John Glenn, 5-2. Aiello comes into the 2023-24 season after a 36-0 campaign last year and defeating the #1 and #2 seed to earn his state title. A great early season win for Will.

Congratulations Will !
