Never before in the 100 year history of Nebraska wrestling, has anyone won two national championships. That is until Saturday night, when Jordan Burroughs won the 165 title with a major decision victory over Tyler Caldwell of Oklahoma.
After the match, the Sicklerville, NJ native said, “Being close to home, a lot of friends and family are here. Anywhere it was, I was going to wrestle my best tournament and try to put together a lot of bonus?point victories. Coach Manning always stresses domination every match. I’m not satisfied winning by one or two points, so go out and wrestle my hardest match every time and hopefully get the major.”
