Losing High School Wrestler Does The Classiest Thing Ever

When Mitchell McKee found out that his dad had terminal cancer, he resolved to dedicate himself to achieving something that would make his pop proud and put a smile on his face. He decided he would win the state title in his 120lbs wrestling class. And after a lot of dedication and hard work, he found himself in the final. But against a very tough opponent – heavy favorite Malik Stewart…

But just one minute into the bout, Mitchell pinned Malik to the floor and found himself state champion. His dad couldn’t have been more proud. It was a beautiful story. But to add to the emotion, what the losing finalist Malik (who lost his own father to illness as a young child) does next touched everyone in the crowd.
