Gritter earned All-America honors by placing fifth at the 2007 NCAA Wrestling Championships. The 2007 MAC champion at heavyweight, Gritter was 4-2 overall at the tournament. He became the first Chippewa to advance to the semifinals in any weight class since 2003 and his fifth-place finish is the highest for any CMU individual since 2004.
Gritter, a junior, maintains a 3.02 grade-point average as a physical education major.
