Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I thought this was interesting. There was an E:60 report on this on ESPN the other day.

Michael Spriggs is a 215 lb wrestler for the C.H. Flowers wrestling team, he is also blind.

There is an article about him

I just think its amazing that a man that cant see is able to be such a great wrestler, just watch the kid wrestle.. he has a ton of skill.. and please, no Matt Hamill vs Michael Spriggs jokes.
