BOSTON, Mass. — An undefeated high school wrestler threw a match, and the reason why went viral.
Andy Howland of Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School came face-to-face with senior Deven Schuko of Norton, who is the number one ranked Division 3 wrestler in his weight class.
But he gave up his winning streak for Andy, who has Down syndrome.
“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,” Deven said.
The video of Andy pinning Deven has gone viral.
“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,” Deven said.
