Didn't Hendricks get pinned in the finals that year?

He actually controlled Churella rather well in the semis that year.  Churella was the 2 seed and Hendricks the 3.  In fact, Hendricks had a really strong tournament pretty much dominating into the semis and then 2 controlling wins over Churella and Perry. 

The bigger part of that bracket was a freshman Perry knocking off Letter 3-0.  Letters was undefeated and was dominant during the season similar to a Retherford season.  Perry did a great job in the 1st of slowing Letters down.  He got to his leg multiple times and used up a ton of time holding on.  But, I think the 2nd period was the kill shot.  Letters had no answer for Perry's ride. After about 30 seconds of a hard double leg ride, Letters sat back into a Perry's crab ride right off the restart and Perry was able to hold him long enough with a half to get a 5 count.  After that, Letters was fully out of it mentally.  It may have been the most masterful match I have seen Perry wrestle!

OK State had five champs. Is this the most ever or tied for the most?

In D1 yes.   Overall Central Oklahoma had 6 one year, but I think that was when they were NAIA.  Might have been first or 2nd year in DII.
