27-0 winning streak ended last weekend

Devon Schuko of Norton, MA, is captain of his high school wrestling team. He recently earned his 100th career victory and was 27-0 this year before losing a match last weekend to Dighton-Rehobeth high school wrestler Andy Howland, who was brave enough to challenge Schuko. Howland has competed seven years, and always smiles when he wrestles because he believes Jesus Christ is with him. He also has Down syndrome.

Norton wrestling coach Pat Coleman called Schuko "a class act who respects any wrestler, and I think he just proved it's never wrong to do the right thing." Schuko gave Howland a victory he'll never forget. After a film of the match went viral, thousands are praising the athlete with the big heart. Schuko said he was happy to have his perfect record demolished by Howland, adding, "He threw in a good move. He was strong. He's a tough kid. If I had to loose to someone, I'd like to loose to Andy."
