Jason Chamberlain named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for May 27-June 2



Jason Chamberlain (Springville, Utah/Springville HS) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for May 27-June 2.

Each week, TheMat.com will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level.

Chamberlain was awarded the 2008 Dave Schultz High School Excellence National Award by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum this past weekend in Stillwater, Okla.

Chamberlain was selected from the 49 state winners and five regional winners that were announced.

Chamberlain's career record of 191-2 includes 98 pins and four state championships. He was a captain on his high school wrestling team and was honored by USA Utah as the "Wrestler of the Year" in 2007.

He was a USA Wrestling Junior National Freestyle champion and Greco-Roman runner-up in 2007. In both 2006 and 2007, he was the National High School Coaches Association wrestling national champion. He has been the recipient of the Academic All-Region award from the Utah High School Activities Association the past four years.

He has served as a Teachers Aid in Sports Medicine classes and as a volunteer youth leader at his local church. He has spent numerous volunteer hours coaching and officiating youth wrestling activities, and was a camp counselor for the Rulon Gardner summer camp. He carries a 3.75 G.P.A. and will be attending Boise State University next fall as a student-wrestler. He is projected to wrestle at 141 pounds in college.
