Jordan Ottow started wrestling at the age of five in southwest Michigan. A few years later, after moving to Washington he began training at USA Everett Wrestling Club. Throughout the 1990s USA Everett was producing some of top wrestlers in the state, country, and even internationally. During his time at USA Everett Jordan won several freestyle and greco state championships. Starting in 1992 Jordan was on the Washington National Team every year through 1997. In 1993 Jordan took 5th in freestyle at the cadet world team trials. The following summer Jordan was runner-up in greco at the cadet nationals and also made the national finals in greco at the 1997 Junior Nationals in Fargo. While at Junior Nationals Jordan finished second for most pins in the least amount of time by just a couple seconds behind Daniel Cormier (LA). Later that summer Jordan received an invitation from the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.
At the time college appeared to be the better life choice. Jordan found his way to Southern Oregon University where he finished his collegiate wrestling career as a two-time All-American; finishing best as a national finalist.
Not long after Jordan’s competitive wrestling career ended he began coaching as an assistant wrestling coach at Monroe High School where his younger brother Sam was attending school. After two years with Monroe Sam transferred to Snohomish High School, and Jordan followed to coach at SHS for two years.
During their high school careers Jordan and his brothers, Lee and Sam, made the state finals a combined six times and all three were four time state placers. Jordan finished his high school wrestling career with a record of 128 wins and 12 losses.
