LOYAL, Wis. (WSAW) -- Neillsville-Loyal-Granton wrestler Stephen Buchanan is heading to Wyoming on a Division 1 scholarship.

He's the first wrestler in the program's history to go Division 1

Last season, he finished with a school record 32 pins.

This year, Buchanan said he wants to set the bar even higher as he prepares for the college level.

"As a kid I always wanted to be the NFL football player, but when I started growing up, I started getting better at wrestling then over football," Buchanan said. "I made a goal that I wanted to go D1. I used the talent and the work to pay off my college. It was just a small town, so I would fit in there. I guess they offered me the most scholarship I could say."
