Jordan Burroughs was born in Camden and grew up in Sicklerville. He’s heading to London to compete in the 74 kg Freestyle wrestling weight class. He caught the attention of Deadspin.com for his extreme confidence on his website and his Twitter account. How cool is that?

Jordan wrestled at Winslow Township High School. During his high school career he won three district championships and two regional championships, and in 2006, he captured a state title at 135 pounds. He committed to the University of Nebraska as the seventh ranked 135 pounder in the country and went on to a terrific college career up until graduation in 2011.

We will be watching Jordan wrestle on NBC on August 10th.  Join us in cheering him on!
