BRADFORD, Pa (93.7 The Fan) - A senior at Bradford High School in northern Pennsylvania made a dream come true for one of his classmates last week.

Wrestler Dillon Keane faced off against 17-year-old junior Jacob Meister who has cerebral palsy and autism. Meister’s dream has been to wrestle in a match and Keane was more than happy to help.

During the last match of the evening, Meister took on Keane, pinned him for the mat for the victory.  A roar of cheers, applause erupted in the gym.

Keane’s overall record is 82-18 and is 9-0 this season. Well, make that 9-1.

Keane’s girlfriend said in a Twitter post, “Amazing to see the joy it brought to his family and the community. My heart is so full.”
