MANHEIM, PA. – There were very few things St. Cloud State University wrestler Kameron Teacher (Columbus, Ohio / Central Crossing) did not accomplish during the 2020-21 season. The senior was crowned a national champion, not once but twice, and earned All-America, All-Conference, and Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Wrestler of the Year honors. On Monday, Teacher received the highest honor of them all, as he was named the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) Division II Wrestler of the Year.
Teacher was perfect in 2020-21, as he led the Huskies to their third consecutive national championship and fifth in the last six years. A four-time All-American, Teacher posted an immaculate 13-0 dual match record in 2020-21 and was crowned the national champion at the 285 weight class. Teacher was the No. 1 heavyweight in the nation throughout the 2020-21 season, and was also named the Super V Region Wrestler of the Year on Monday, having won the 285 crown at the regional competition in late February.
This is one of many postseason honors Teacher has been awarded this season, as he was named First Team All-NSIC in February before being named the Conference Wrestler of the Year back in March. Additionally, Teacher was one of seven Huskies to earn All-America honors and was the first individual to win a national championship since 2016. At the end of the year, Teacher led the team in points earned and bonus points at the end of the regular season, with 21 points earned thanks to three major decision wins and two wins by pin. He went 5-0 in NSIC dual matches this season.
