    Great story from here in Nashville...

    There is a video of the match as well.

    BRENTWOOD, Tenn. -

    It's been a whirlwind couple of days for 13-year-old Jared Stevens as he participated and won his first wrestling match on November 29 at Sunset Middle School.

    Jared, who has cerebral palsy, has been a part of the wrestling team as a coach. He recently told his father Phil Stevens he wanted to participate in a match.

    Jared's coach, John Sandella made his wish come true with the help of Freedom Middle School coach Randy Stevens and student wrestler Justin Kievit.
