Jordan Burroughs plays Easter Bunny

Jordan Burroughs dressed up as the Easter Bunny and helped brighten the day of neighborhood families in this difficult time

Gold medalist in men's freestyle, at the 2012 Olympics. Four-time world champion. Two-time NCAA champ. Now Jordan Burroughs can add yet another role to his already impressive accomplishments: Easter Bunny.

The legendary 31-year-old New Jersey native traded in his wrestling singlet for the fluffy-furred, floppy-eared seasonal character to surprise and delight his neighbors in Lincoln, Neb., according to KLKN-TV Monday.

Burroughs shared his experience on Instagram:

When he's not helping the Easter Bunny with his appointed rounds, Burroughs is training in Lincoln with University of Nebraska wrestling coach Mark Manning, hoping to wrestle for the U.S. at the Tokyo Olympics next year.

As a Husker, Burroughs was a three-time Big 12 conference champ, three-time NCAA All-American and twice an NCAA titlewinner, concluding his collegiate mat career at Nebraska with the Dan Hodge Trophy -- presented each year to the nation's top college wrestler -- in 2011. Burroughs then moved on to international freestyle competition, winning four world championships and the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics at 74 kilograms/163 pounds.
