I am glad that the feel-good story of the week is coming from Burlington!

BHS junior Steven Giampapa has been making news this week for his kindness towards a fellow wrestler from Wakefield. Steven went up against Danny Gill, a sophomore who was wrestling in his first career match (and also happens to have Down’s Syndrome).

While I enjoyed seeing Steven win a State Championship as a junior last year, I am much more excited that so many people have gotten to see the type of person he is through this story.

 The clip above ran on Fox News last night and you can check out the clip that ran on WBZ on Wednesday night here.
