Nebraska's Jordan Burroughs named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for March 15-21



Jordan Burroughs (Sicklerville, N.J./University of Nebraska) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for March 15-21.

Each week, TheMat.com will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level.

Burroughs scored bonus points in all five of his wins en route to winning the 165-pound title at the NCAA Championships on Saturday in Philadelphia.

The top-ranked Burroughs downed Oklahoma’s No. 3 Tyler Caldwell by an 11-3 major decision in the finals. He became the first two-time NCAA champion in Nebraska history.

Burroughs won his second national title after capturing the 157 crown in 2009. He was sidelined last year with a knee injury. Burroughs placed third at 149 in the 2008 NCAA tournament.

Burroughs is a past Junior World Team member in freestyle.
