Groundbreakers: Kevin Jackson
Jun 22, 2022
Jordan Burroughs visits with 3x World/Olympic Champion Kevin Jackson while KJ is in Austin, TX for a Michigan wrestling meet. The two legends talk about Jackson's introduction to the sport and wrestling at LSU when they cut the program.
Jackson transferred to Iowa State but was denied of ever winning at NCAA title, largely by Royce Alger. But KJ excelled on the senior level winning two World titles and an Olympic Gold medal.
Jackson also talks about his time at Foxcatcher and some of the injustices that took place on the farm before the final blow in 1996.
