Lucas Sheridan (Colorado Springs, Colo./U.S. Army WCAP) has been selected as USA Wrestling Athlete of the Week on Feb. 25, 2020.

Sheridan, a sergeant for the U.S. Army, was instrumental in helping Army WCAP win its 19th-straight Greco-Roman and freestyle Armed Forces Championships titles.

Over the weekend, Sheridan won all six of his matches, tallying four pins and two technical falls without giving up a single point.

He earned pins over Mark Saunders of Navy, Diante Cooper of Air Force and Vaughn Monreal-Berner of Marines in Greco-Roman action.

Sheridan also notched another pin over Saunders in the freestyle dual, while scoring tech falls over Cooper and Monreal-Berner in the second day of action, 10-0 and 11-0, respectively.

In his four bouts that ended in pins, Sheridan spent collectively 3:05 on the mat.

Each week USA Wrestling 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. Twitter fan votes also play a part in decision.

To nominate a wrestler for this honor please send the athlete's name, wrestling program, weekly accomplishments and career accolades to USA Wrestling Manager of Communications Taylor Miller at tmiller@usawrestling.org.
