In March of 2021 at the NCAA Division I wrestling championships in St. Louis, five African-American wrestlers – Iowa State’s David Carr, Minnesota’s Gable Steveson and the Penn State trip of Roman Bravo-Young, Carter Starocci and Aaron Brooks — all won individual championships. It was a high water mark for wrestlers of color, especially African Americans as at the top level of men’s college wrestling – Division I – half of the champions were African American, the most in any one single season. 

It was historic as much as it was iconic, but for records to be set, there must first be people to do something unique, to do something first, to do something – again - iconic. 

This series from Etched in Stone will tell you the in-depth story of Lloyd Keaser – A man who overcame growing up in a segregated community near Baltimore and battled through poverty ad racism on – and off – the mat and through it all, excelled in the classroom and excelled for his country.
