IOWA CITY, Iowa. (KCRG) - Max Murin knows all about maddening crowds like the ones he competes in regularly as a D1 wrestler for Iowa.

"It's awesome being here, wrestling for Iowa at Carver-Hawkeye Arena." Murin said. "Amazing fans, great experience".

To get away from it all, Murin reverts to something a little quieter. Chess. Murin was the president of the chess club at his high school in Pennsylvania. Being called Mr. President is nothing new.

"It's more my name than Max." Murin said.
