Jason Nolf Biography

Jason Nolf was born on January 10, 1996, in Yatesboro, Pennsylvania, United States, being the son of Michael and Audra Nolf.

A natural-born athlete, Nolf attended High School at Kittanning where he became a three-sport competitor, lettering four times in wrestling, twice in cross country, and once in track & field.

Although successful in all aforementioned activities, Nolf stood out the most as a wrestler, where he earned three (3) Pennsylvania State (PIAA) titles, compiling a record of 176-1, while becoming captain of the varsity team.

His successful high school career did not go unnoticed and by his senior year, Jason had plenty of offers on the table, opting to go with the defending NCAA D1 champion team at the time, the Penn State Nittany Lions.

During the first season at Pen State (2014-2015), Jason opted to wrestle unattached (redshirt), entering open tournaments where he compiled a record of 15-1. With the experience gained as a redshirt, Nolf came in very strong in his freshman year, earning a second place at the Big Ten Championship and at the NCAA tournament, where he dominated his way through to the finals, there suffering a close 5–6 loss to Isaiah Martinez. His performances earned him the Freshman of the Year award by Intermat.

Jason only improved on his marks during the years that followed as he became a three-time NCAA Champion, four-time finalist, four-time All-American and two-time Big Ten champion in college with two of his three overall losses coming as a freshman, both against Isaiah Martinez and the last one was an injury default.

Although with prior experience competing in freestyle wrestling as a cadet and a junior in tournaments such as the US Open and the United World Wrestling World Team Trials, Jason did not truly commit to this ruleset until after college, obtaining immediate success at the Pan American Championships.
