That’s an awesome story! We need more of that in this world.One of my favorite days was in 2009 or 2010. Randy Lewis entered the Northern Plains to celebrate turning 50. Pete Bush was leading his entourage. Both senior and youth tournaments were going on at the same time.
When Randy's first match was called, all wrestling stopped and all wrestlers surrounded his mat to see an Olympic champion compete. Lewboo drew a DIII wrestler who wasn't born when "the impossible leg" was defeating the best wrestlers in the world. Sure enough, the kid got in on a single and paid the price.
Randy faced a DII kid in the second round and won on a late exposure, getting to the semis against Moza Fay from UNI. Once again, all action stopped so everyone in the building could watch. Moza took Randy down, locked up a leg lace and turned him 4 times quickly. The match was over, but not the celebration. After the referee raised Moza's hand, Moza followed Lewboo off the mat, grabbed his arm and brought him back onto the mat. He raised Randy's arm and turned him to face everyone there. The ovation was stirring. It was one of the best displays of respect and sportsmanship I have ever seen.
