This is a video of what a team captain and leader looks like. Devin Schuko, a senior with a 27-0 record this year, a young man who earned his 100th career win a few days ago to join the century club at NHS, took the time to make a dream come true for young wrestler with special needs from Dighton Rehoboth’s team. So proud to have witnessed this. Truly a special young man.. Thank you Schuko!

Norton High School’s wrestling team captain, Deven Schuko, is a “class act” as his coach, Pat Coleman, called him. Andy Howland, a Down-syndrome wrestler for Dighton-Rehoboth High School, wanted to wrestle Schuko and the undefeated captain took him up on the offer.[contentblock id=5 img=adsense.png]
The match ended with Schuko’s first loss of the season. Anthony Pucino posted the video and noted how Schuko “took the time to make a dream come true for a young wrestler with special needs.”[contentblock id=1 img=adsense.png]
“He threw in a good move,” Schuko told WCVB 5. “He was strong. He’s a tough kid.” When Coach Coleman spoke of the match and his wrestler, he did so with pride: “Deven has a natural respect for any wrestler, such as Andy, and I think Deven just proved there that it’s never wrong to do the right thing. If I had to lose to someone, I’d like to lose to Andy, It was a win-win in my book. He won, I won,” Schuko added.
