(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Some athletes make it look easy.

But that doesn't mean they have peaked.

"I'm still really raw with wrestling," Kasson-Mantorville wrestler Broc Berge said.

The senior enters his final high school season with two state titles to his name.

"Broc's a very humble kid, and really raw in what he wants to achieve beyond high school," Komets head coach Paul Mann said.

There is no doubting his talent.

His success on the mat has pushed him to one of college's great wrestling schools.

"I'm going to go to the University of Iowa," Berge said. "I've already signed my letter of intent."

The fourth-ranked Hawkeyes have been one of the most dominant programs in the sport's history.

"For me as a person, that's where I'm going to grow the most. And then the wrestling also, I like their mentality and toughness, so I had to pick them," Berge said.

As for what's left at the high school level, Broc says he would love to win a third straight state title, but that does not top the list.

"The big one right now, I think as a program, we're working to win that team state title," Berge said.
