Tahlequah native and longtime Stilwell veterinarian Mike Sheets will be honored with the Outstanding American Award by the Oklahoma Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame at its banquet in Edmond on Oct. 9
The Outstanding American Award is given to individuals who have used the disciplines of wrestling to launch notable careers in other walks of life. Today, he is highly regarded as one of the best veterinarians in eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas, using the work ethic he learned as a wrestler to care for animals of all sizes.
Sheets won two national titles for Oklahoma State University and was a four-time All-American competing at 167 pounds. After finishing his undergraduate education, he turned his attention to his lifelong goal of becoming a veterinarian.
The Outstanding American Award will be presented alongside coaches Mike Henry, Bill Reeves, Steve Shibley, LeRoy Smith, Ray Weis and official Gordon Nelson who will receive the Lifetime Service to Wrestling Award. In addition, the Smith brothers of Del City will be presented with the inaugural Madalene and Lee Roy Smith Family Award
