Philipsburg-Osceola’s Matt Johnson is a Centre Daily Times Athlete of the Week.

The Mounties’ wrestler at 152 pounds came away with the individual title at the JJ Powell Mountaineer Tournament on Saturday and also helped lead P-O to the team title among the eight-team field. He was also named the tournament’s Outstanding Wrestler.

The P-O senior went 3-0 over the tournament to clinch the 152-pound title. He pinned Curwensville Area’s Jake McCracken, pinned Punxsutawney Area’s Stone Smith and — in the championship bout — came away with a 7-1 decision over General McLane’s Brett Mallory.
