Braden Blackorby

THE CHAIN IS STRONG! We're pumped to announce Braden Blackorby as our new Chain Wrestling Brand Athlete. 

The Johnston High wrestler and University of Virginia commit has made a big name for himself in a very short amount of time. As a junior, Braden - known for being the ultimate team player - cut down his weight to 145 pounds. He wrestled his way to runner-up at the Iowa high school state championships - with an overall season record of 36-4 and a whopping 29 pins.

This past off season, Braden went to work in the weight room - building to 175 pounds. Now a senior, he's looking to set a new school record of 33 pins and become a state champion.
