The fourth episode takes an in-depth look at the Monk family and how it has shaped Steven’s success, as well as an impending military deployment for Steven’s father, David.
A two-time NCAA Championships qualifier, Monk owns a record of 29-1 this season and a perfect 18-0 mark in duals for the Bison. Monk’s career record stands at 127-23 — giving him the second-most wins ever by a Bison wrestler and the seventh-best winning percentage in school history. He has won 82 of his last 90 matches.
All documentary episodes will be available on the NDSU Athletics YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/ndsuathletics), Facebook page (www.facebook.com/NDBison) and Twitter account (www.twitter.com/NDSUathletics). Episodes are scheduled to be released monthly.
NDSU All-Access will follow Monk from preseason drills through the NCAA Championships in March, as the Wausau, Wis., native aims for his first NCAA All-America honor. The documentary will delve into all aspects of Monk’s life and provide a behind-the-scenes look at one of the nation’s top wrestlers.
