Middle school wrestler lets boy with cerebral palsy win match [Viral Video]
While we may hate to admit it, we all do selfish things every day. That’s why people like Justin Kievit serve as an inspiration to everyone.
Kievit, a middle school wrestler in Tennessee, intentionally lost a match to Jared Stevens in Stevens’ first-ever wrestling match.
Stevens has cerebral palsy. While his father said he has the “physical ability of a 6-month-old,” socially Stevens “hits it out of the park.”
Stevens participates with his school’s wrestling team and recently asked his coach to get into a match. Stevens’ coach called the opposing coach to find a wrestler with the most heart.
That’s where Kievit stepped up.
In the clip, Justin can be seen shaking hands with Jared before the match before helping his opponent pin him.
