Sue to wrestle at Eastern Oregon University
Indians senior Braxton Sue announced his intent to study forestry at and wrestle for Eastern Oregon University (La Grande) on Friday, May 13, at Scappoose High.
Sue wrestled to a 40-6 record and third place at 132 pounds this season, was fifth at state at 120 pounds last year and was third at 106 pounds in 2014.
Eastern Oregon University announced the revival of its wrestling program, inactive since the 1970s, on Jan. 16.
Braxton fits the mold of what we are looking for as a EOU wrestler, first-year Eastern Oregon coach Dustyn Azure said. He is ready and willing to become positive a leader in the classroom, on the wrestling mat and in the community. His style of wrestling will fit well into college, he is a competitor and he is going to develop well in college because he loves competition and pushing himself to continue getting better. I am excited to have the opportunity to coach him in his college wrestling career as a Mountaineer.
The Mountaineers won NAIA individual championships in 1967, 1969 and 1974, and achieved top-10 finishes in 1967-69 and 1971.
