High School Wrestler Loses Like A Champ

After Minnesota high school wrestler Malik Stewart lost the state championship match to wrestler Mitchell McKee, his next actions were remarkable. Stewart walked over to McKee's father, Steve who is battleing terminal cancer and embraced him. 

McKee had previously vowed to win a state title for his father and Stewart, whose father passed away after suffering a heart attack when he was 7, understood the enormity of the win for the McKees. 

"It was a big match for him and to be able to hug my dad like that and not be mad and storm off like a lot of kids do," Mitchell said after the match. "Really respectful."
