Grant Fehlhafer wrestles for Seward High School. But, he isn't your average high school athlete. Grant has Downs Syndrome.

Though he practices with the team, Grant has never had the opportunity to wrestle in a competitive match.

That was until this past weekend at the B-1 District Tournament.

Austin Middleton, a Senior at Ralston High School, saw Fehlhafer across the gym and thought it looked like Grant might like a match.

After losing his match at the tournament and failing to qualify for the state tournament, Middleton worked things out Fehlhafer's coach. They found a referee for the match and ended the district tournament with one to remember.

Not only did Grant Fehlhafer get his first match ever, he also got his first win. It just happened to be the final match of Austin Middleton's high school career as he graduates later this year.
