Daton Fix has had 2 non redshirt seasons with the Oklahoma State Cowboys and has gone into the final tournament as the number one seed at 133 pounds both times. In 2019 he lost to Rutgers first ever national champ, Nick Suriano, and in 2021 he lost to PSU’s, Roman Bravo-Young. Entering his RS Junior year, Fix will surely be looking to hold up to his number 1 seed this year.
Daton Fix has compiled a career record of 52-3 under legendary coach John Smith, that includes the two final losses and just one dual match loss his RS freshman year. He has done this throughout a period where 133 has never been more stacked. Even as it thinned out after the 2019 season, Fix still had names like Austin Desanto and Chris Cannon in his way before his matchup with RBY.
Now a veteran on the Cowboys’ lineup, Fix will look to lead the team through the Big 12, a conference Fix is known to dominate. With most of the best 133 wrestlers coming out of the Big 10 conference, some might think that Fix has it easy in the Big 12 conference tournament. His 2021 win was over unranked Tony Madrigal in the conference finals, the 133 Big 10 conference finals was between No. 2 Ranked RBY and No. 3 ranked Austin Desanto.
Daton Fix of course has wrestled these ranked opponents during the regular season. Many wrestlers, however, take the conference tournament as a chance to sharpen their skills before the big show. Daton fix has come up one match short two years in a row, maybe the competition in the Big 12 just isn’t enough to get him ready for the best in his class. Eyes will be on Daton Fix and John Smith to bring home a national title for the RS Junior at the end of this season.
