The Florida native discusses how much he enjoyed competing and how much he’s enjoyed building a true following and a fanbase in Brookings, S.D. An NCAA champion at Iowa State with previous coaching stints at his alma mater and Chattanooga, Bono discusses what steps the team has taken to raise the profile and awareness and what the philosophy is behind #GETJACKED.
