Watch This Undefeated High School Wrestler Share an Incredible Moment with Special Needs Opponent

A Norton High School wrestler named Devin Schuko took part in a touching moment. Schuko was undefeated throughout his senior season. However, that was about to change. After capturing 100 career wins, and capping off a tremendous 27-0 year, Schuko stepped on the mat with his next opponent from Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School student Andy Howland.

Andy has Down syndrome but he doesn’t let that stop him from playing the sport he loves. Schuko and Howland stepped onto the mat and the rest was history. Take a look for yourself.

Schuko said afterwards:

We shook hands, and we locked up, and he was a tough kid. And he bulldogged me over to my back. I couldn’t stop the power. I’ve been in sports all my life and wrestling, I believe, is most demanding and for someone like Andy to wrestle and stick with it, I wanted to make his day.

In a world dominated by such negative news, it’s amazing to hear such touching stories.
