Britton started wrestling at the age of three, following in his father’s footsteps. As he got older, wrestling continued to stand out to him as the most humbling sport that would challenge him every day – but he also became a standout, named Fargo All-American in Greco-Roman wrestling. After high school, Britton attended Northern Michigan University and trained at the Olympic Training Site in Marquette, Michigan. His professional wrestling career has also included a 1st place finish at the U23 World Team Trials and a 3rd place medal at the Olympic Trials last chance qualifier. Since joining, he has represented the US Army on his first world team in Belgrade, Serbia.

I chose wrestling over other sports because it is one of the most humbling sports that challenges me as an individual everyday.
