Centennial High’s Tuma commits to Nebraska wrestling team

Three-time state wrestling champion Hayden Tuma of Centennial High recently gave a verbal commitment to Nebraska.

The senior also made official visits to Iowa, Iowa State, Boise State and Indiana before making his decision.

Tuma has an extensive resume at the national and international level.

He owns two Junior National Greco-Roman titles and earned the tournament’s outstanding wrestler award in 2013. He also holds a FILA Junior Greco-Roman title, a FILA Junior Worlds Trial Greco-Roman title, two Cadet National titles each in freestyle and Greco-Roman, two FILA Cadet National Greco-Roman titles and four All-American finishes.

Tuma is one of two current high school wrestlers in the nation to have made the Greco-Roman World Team three years in a row. He most recently represented the United States in Sofia, Bulgaria, for the Junior World Championship, where he placed eighth in 2013.

Tuma has pinned his way to the past two state championships at 132 pounds (2012) and 138 (2013), and has an overall record of 125-4 in three seasons at Centennial.
