Gopher graduate Bobby Steveson talking life, wrestling and what’s next – GG67
Bobby Steveson came into the University of Minnesota from nearby Apple Valley High School as the top-ranked 195-pounder in the country. A champion at the USA Wrestling Junior Nationals, Steveson looked to be one of the anchors for the upper weights for the Gophers.
But injuries took their toll and even though Steveson made one trip to the NCAA Division I Championships, his high school accolades and expectations didn’t match up. Now with his college career over, Steveson talks about what’s next, what it’s been like to corner his younger brother Gable at the World level and the disappointment he and his Gopher teammates felt when the 2020 NCAA Championships, set for U.S. Bank Stadium, were canceled.
Steveson talks about connecting with this musical side, his outdoorsy hobbies and how much he changed as a person after enrolling in college. Not all high school wrestling super studs have glittering careers, but Steveson’s looking back at his while moving forward with life.
