BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Just one day after winning its first-ever Kansas Cup, the Baker University wrestling team announced the signing of Olathe Northwest High School standout Connor Middleton.

Middleton, a 5’9 dual athlete in football and wrestling has a well-decorated high school career and looks to continue to pursue two sports while attending college.

On the football field in 2011 Connor was the captain of the Ravens and was named to the All-State 6A team, All-Sunflower League first team, and All-State 6A honorable mention Topeka Capitol-Journal/Wichita Eagle squad.

On the mat, Middleton currently owns a career wrestling record of 157-11 after being named an NHSCA Jr. Nationals All-American in 2010 to go along with his state championship. He was also named to the Kansas City metro honorable mention squad and was the Olathe News Wrestler of the Year in 2010.

“Connor will be a great addition to our program,” said head Baker wrestling coach Jimmy May. “He’s a quality athlete that should come in and contribute immediately.”
