During a recent Cyclone tailgate tour stop in Waterloo---former East high wrestling star Kyven gadson received some special attention form fans.

The Iowa state three-time All-American is still riding high after winning his first national title with a pin in the finals at 197 pounds.

Kyven says he has spent the last month and a half relaxing and celebrating. But he says soon he will make an announcement about his future-- will he continue his quest for Olympic gold in wrestling--or will he go after his masters in athletic administration--either way he wants to make his community and his family--including his late father Willie-proud.


Whichever way I go if its Rio 2016 or just finish up my Masters I'm going to make the community proud whichever way I decide to do.. I love my dad I love my dad so much and my mom also and she was in the stands there at NCAA's and it is awesome to achieve that cause they had so much to with it for them to see that I don't know how I could ever repay them --Moving forward I'm trying to do a lot more.
