NIGEL McNEIL
Long Island Wrestler of the Year
Huntington, 119, Sr.
After winning the state title at 112 last year, he moved up to 119 and won another state title this year, furthering his reputation as one of New York’s top pound-for-pound wrestlers. He went 40-0 with 19 pins, three forfeit wins, eight major decisions and four technical falls. During the state championships in Albany, McNeil went 4-0, winning each match by at least five points.

He ended his career on an 80-match win steak over the course of more than two seasons.
