Travin Claflin of Gibbon has signed a letter of intent to wrestle with the Concordia University Bulldogs. Claflin had an outstanding senior year wrestling for Sumner-Eddyville-Miller School in Sumner. Claflin capped off his senior season with a 37-5 record. He placed second in the Nebraska State Wrestling Championships.
Claflin had an overall prep mark of 113-41 and was a two-time member of the Nebraska Academic All-State Wrestling Team. He was the Most Outstanding Wrestler in the Sutherland Invite and was named the Winter Athlete-of-the-Year in the Clipper Herald.
Claflin plans to major in Pre-Physical Therapy. He will wrestle at 157 pounds for the Bulldogs next season.
"Travin is a great addition to our team," noted Coach Doug Reese. "We had a big hole in our line-up at 157 pounds last season, and we expect Travin to more than fill it next season. He is a tough and physical wrestler who will adapt well to our style of wrestling."
