Canon Swanson of Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa has committed to wrestling for North Dakota State University next season.
When Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa head wrestling coach Jack Mueller took over the Jaguars’ wrestling program, he brought with him the career of a wrestling grinder. From his days fighting for varsity time in high school to his time at multiple assistant coaching stops, Mueller brought a grinder mentality to the BBE program. Now, the Jaguars are in the midst of one of their best seasons in program history – grinding away wins.
Mueller grew up in the wrestling hotbed of Paynesville.
“As I was coming up through the ranks, I got to watch some pretty good teams and individuals run through that program,” Mueller said. “I was around for the tail end of their good run. When they won the state title in 2000, I was a seventh-grader. Just watching that was a big influence. My dad’s side of the family was a big Paynesville wrestling family. On my mom’s side, it was the same thing – they were both big Paynesville wrestling families.”
Despite his family’s history – Mueller didn’t start wrestling as soon as most in the area.
