WUW 081 | Steve Manders

Steve Manders joined the Hawkeyes in the class of 2013 as a walk-on linebacker from Fork Union Prep on the east coast. He eventually transitioned from LB to fullback and remained on the team through the 2017 Outback Bowl against Florida. Steve talks about his path to Iowa, what he learned in Iowa City, and how being inside the program helped him get to where he is now. A lifetime pro wrestling fan, Steve had already graduated with his degree from Iowa and decided to forgo his senior season with the team to chase a life long dream. The seed had been planted and several connections had already been made, Steve entered wrestling school under the tutelage of WWE superstar Seth Rollins. Now, 3 years later, Steve has grinded his way up the ranks by traveling thousands of miles and wrestling hundreds of matches, many times for no compensation. Things are just beginning for the Cornbelt Cowboy, hear about all of this and more.
