Last year everyone of Reed's opponents were bigger then him, by a lot. So when Reed wanted to try wrestling again, we were kind of surprise. So of course his first match they skip right over Reed and forget him tell the end of the meet. So they throw him out there with the last kid on the other team. Reed: 39lbs, opponent: 56lbs! That is so unfair to send someone out there that is 50% bigger then you. The kid chucked Reed across the mat several times apparently learning his wrestling skill from WWF! In the end Reed's speed and skill prevailed and although he was crying and felt like he had done terribly, he actually won by points. The next week he FINALLY got paired with someone in his weight class and really showed us what he could do when matched well. We don't know if this will be his sport but we are just proud of him for working so hard.
