Des Moines Roosevelt’s John Meeks should be used to attention after wrestling in front of thousands at the state tournament, but he was a little overwhelmed Tuesday morning.

The whole student body gathered to celebrate Meek’s undefeated high school career on the wrestling mat.

Meeks finished his high school career this past weekend, with a 168-0 record. Among his accomplishments are winning four consecutive state titles.
