Elite Sports Physical Therapy Week 6 Shore Conference Wrestler of the Week: Toms River South’s Caden Langan
Every week this wrestling season, Shore Conference fans will have the chance to vote for the Elite Sports Physical Therapy Wrestler of the Week on our website and decide which local standout should earn the weekly honor.
The winner of the Week 6 (Jan 24 to Jan. 30) Wrestler of the Week poll is Toms River South freshman 132-pounder Caden Langan, who delivered a win by fall over a ranked wrestler to propel the Indians to a huge win over a district rival.
In Toms River South's match against Toms River North, Langan pinned North's Zack Kerico (previously ranked No. 9 at 120 pounds) at the 2:59 mark of their bout at 132 pounds. The victory turned out to be monstrous as the Indians came away with a 36-34 victory to defeat the Mariners for the first time since 2016.
Langan has had a great freshman season for Toms River South, boasting a team-best 16-3 record through Feb. 5. He and the Indians qualified for the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 4 tournament and will wrestle vs. Toms River East in the quarterfinals.
It was a close poll for the Wrestler of the Week award with Langan narrowly winning over Raritan's Zach Reilley.
