WILMINGTON – Bobby Telford, a 2010 graduate of St. Mark’s High School who wrestles at the University of Iowa, was ranked first in the country at 285 lbs. in the Jan. 28 rankings by Amateur Wrestling News. Telford rose from third to first after defeating Tony Nelson of Minnesota on Jan. 25.

The victory was the 10th in a row for Telford, a redshirt junior, although the streak was snapped on Jan. 31 by Michael McMullan of Northwestern. He is 17-2 on the year for the Hawkeyes, who are ranked No. 3 in the country in the latest USA Today/National Wrestling Coaches Association/AWN Division I Coaches Poll.

Telford, a Hockessin native, placed third last season at the Big Ten Conference championships and earned an automatic bid to the NCAA championships. He won once in the NCAAs before defaulting because of an injury. At St. Mark’s, he was a two-time state champion and All-American, and he was named the outstanding wrestler at the 2010 state tournament.

Check out the video of Telford talking about the win over Nelson.
