Graham’s David Taylor enjoys dominant run at wrestling World Cup


David Taylor is making waves overseas for USA Wrestling.

The Graham High School graduate is undefeated for Team USA at the 2017 Freestyle World Cup in Iran, including a dominant victory over former Olympic champion Sharif Sharifov of Azerbaijan.

But apparently he wasn’t satisfied with a mere tech fall win, so he went back to work and pinned Hassan Yazdani Cherati of Iran, the reigning Olympic freestyle champion (74 kg) from Rio.
