It’s the first time Steffen has earned All-NSIC accolades in his career.
A native of Zumbrota, Steffen is 16-1 this season and 8-0 in NSIC duals competing at 184 pounds. He has recorded three pins, two tech falls, three major decisions, and eight decisions, including two wins in sudden victory. His only loss this season has been by medical forfeit, and is ranked fourth nationally.
