    Nice story.

    I really expected the outcome of that last match to be different though... (didn't want to spoil it for others..)

    It's cool to see a kid who everyone thinks is really benefiting from his surroundings, but is actually helping those around him more in return.

    Sometimes the best of stories don't always end in a clear victory that can be documented.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Re: An amazing and uplifting story

    I hope my kids grow up with the kindness of the high schoolers that treated Cullen well, and the spirit of Cullen.

    And I thought Hawkeyes were soulless, Jon...nice find.

    Re: An amazing and uplifting story

    It's a great story for sure, but it's sad that it takes an inability to show ability.

    Re: An amazing and uplifting story

    That is a great story. Anyone know coach Sanderson well enough to ask for him to call that team?

    What an awesome reward for those guys to have a 5-10 minute call with the greatest wrestler of all time.
