MADISON -

Badger freshman wrestler Isaac Jordan is off to a great start in his college career.

Jordan is a perfect 15-0 to start the season at 157 pounds and is ranked seventh in the country in his weight class, and he's carrying on a family tradition.

His father, Jim, was an All-American and a two-time NCAA champion. Jim Jordan is now a US Congressman from Ohio's fourth district.

Isaac Jordan knew he'd follow in his Dad's footsteps in high school.

"I took one visit to a D1 school and it was Madison- I just knew since I was little," he said.

Even though his Dad is busy with his job in Washington, he still gets to all of his sons meets. "He makes sure to do that," Isaac says.
