The last time I wrestled a girl was putting a diaper on my youngest daughter. I won. Not so for Brendan Johnson. A Classical Academy senior, Brendan, forfeited a match that knocked him out of a tournament. His opponent, a girl. The tournament ,the Colorado State High School Wrestling Championship. Brendan was a strong favorite to win in his weight class but chose to be true to his moral upbringing and Christian faith.
