On Tuesday, January 25, what seemed to be a normal wrestling meet turned out to be very meaningful to a Glenbard South High School wrestler. Junior Dale Nelson stepped up to the mat to find himself wrestling a special needs student. Nelson stated, “I was given an opportunity to make a special moment that he would remember for the rest of his career.”
Seeing as it was the student’s senior night, and he had never won a match, Nelson let the student from Grant Park pin him.
The match ended in an incredibly meaningful victory that the student will surely remember. Nelson ended with, “I have so much respect for someone going out for what they love.”
