WILLIAMSTOWN, MA – Williams College first year Nasir Grissom (Santa Monica, Calif.) competing at 174 for Scott Honecker's Williams College wrestling team has been named the New England Wrestling Association (NEWA) Rookie of the Week.
This past weekend competing at the Ithaca College duals versus the host school, Oneonta State, and Wesleyan Grissom went 3-0.
Grissom has compiled an overall record to date of 21-3.
"Nasir has been an outstanding pacesetter for us this year," stated Honecker. "He elevates his teammates with the way he competes and when he is out there wrestling with joy there is no limit to what he can do. He is poised for a tremendous postseason, so if he controls the things under his control and lets his hard work and skills show I am expecting big things out of him."
