Graham grad Isaac Jordan named Big Ten Wrestler of the Week


A comeback victory netted Isaac Jordan the third Big Ten Wrestler of the Week award of his career.

A senior from Graham High School who wrestles for Wisconsin, Jordan topped fourth-ranked Vincenzo Joseph of Penn State 6-4 in overtime Friday after trailing 4-2 in the final minute.

The third-ranked Jordan, 13-1 this season, is a two-time Big Ten champion at 165 pounds and was the NCAA runner-up last year.

He is the son of U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R), who was a two-time NCAA champion and three-time All-American wrestler at Wisconsin.
