NORTON, Massachusetts– A high school wrestler in Norton, Massachusetts, used to be undefeated. But, he would rather make another teenager’s dream come true than score another win.

Deven Schuko recently wrestled Andy Howland,  a high school wrestler with Down syndrome.

According to WCVB, when Andy came looking to compete, Deven did not hestitate.

“He threw in a good move. He was strong. He’s a tough kid,” Deven said.

The moment where Andy pinned Deven was caught on camera and 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 told CBS Boston.  “It was a win-win in my book. He won, I won,” he told WCVB.
