Few wrestling families in the state of Minnesota have had the success of the Moore family from Jackson County Central. Cooper is a two-time Minnesota state champion and is a two-time MAC conference champion for Northern Iowa. Brother Paden is a one-time state champion and is ready to start his college career with his brother at UNI. The youngest of the Moore brothers is JCC senior Keegan Moore. Keegan has a chance to be the most decorated of the Moore brothers – brothers who have helped Keegan get into the sport and helped make him one of the best wrestlers in the nation.
"(My brothers) always make sure I am going hard. Growing up and watching them wrestle I definitely learned from them," Moore said. "All three of us wanted to be doing the same thing."
Originally Moore saw himself as a football player first and a wrestler second.
"I went out for wrestling to become a better football player," Moore said. "My dad was a football coach, and he thought it would be the way to go. We ended up being better at wrestling."
