Lincoln, Neb. ­– Nebraska Wrestling Head Coach Mark Manning announced the addition of Elise Brown Ton to the roster on Thursday.

"We're super excited to get a great young man like Elise," Manning said. "Elise had some other options, but he expressed interest in the culture and enthusiasm we have going on here in our program. He feels he will add to that culture and I'm confident he will do just that."

A native of Allen, Texas, Brown Ton is a two-time Texas state champion, capturing the UIL titles in 2019 and 2020. During his senior season, he capped a 42-2 season with the state crown at 160 pounds. As a junior, Brown Ton went 30-8 and won the state title at 152 pounds with a major decision in the finals. In 2018, Brown Ton placed second at the UIL state tournament at 145 pounds, finishing the season with a 31-9 record, which included winning the region and district titles.

Brown Ton captured the 170-pound Reno Tournament of Champions crown in 2019, pinning three of his six opponents in the process. He also took fourth place at the 2019 Cadet World Team Trials at 71 kg. In 2018, Brown Ton took runner-up honors at the USA Wrestling Preseason Nationals.

Brown Ton also won three consecutive Texas-USA Wrestling State Championship titles in Freestyle and Greco-Roman. In 2019, he won the Junior Boys 160-pound division after capturing Cadet titles in 2017 and 2018.

Talk about having to become a tough guy: Try having the name Jamie Natalie, and being a male gymnast. He was one of my good friends at OSU, won NCAA's the went to Syndey Olympics.

Watching cross country is a pretty tough one. But it's the sport I competed in, so I'm glad they have it.

And yeah, Cross Country stands out as a brutal spectator sport. What do you do, crowd the finish line and just wait for the end? Or stake out some random spot, so you can see who is in the lead? 

Big Ten Golf might be a rough one to attend in person. It would be like attending a pga event, minus the libations and people watching. Do you pick a golfer to follow around the whole day? Or do you stake out a spot on a particular hole, and watch everyone take a hack at it?

Pretty sure Elise Brown Ton won't be wearing a mask or social distancing in that sport

Heh, no. Just these.

Thanks, Brutus.

I agree with your other post.  Cross-country sounds like watching paint dry.
