Tyler, Tx (KETK) — Tyler native Morgan Wade won a silver medal last weekend at the Austin X-Games.
The East Texan has now won five X-Games medals, including his first gold last year.
Wade says he started just fooling around outside his house with his brothers on his bike, and now he gets to compete all over the world.
He's passionate about growing the sport, and says he feels like the best way to create the next generation of local athletes is to build a new skatepark in Tyler.
