    This boy was knocked out previously in another wrestling match. Who is looking out for this wrestler? When winning becomes more important than the health of the athletes, coaches values need to be evaluated. The national and state rules were broken, all in the effort to win. I wish Gilman the best, but at the same time rules need to be followed. They are in place for the athlete's protection.

    In reporting news it is important to get your fact straight, and not be one sided. When you report that Cox slammed Gilman to the mat. You did not mentioning it was a legal move. Taking quotes from one side makes this article bias.

    What? 3 years ago at state my son was wrestling for 3rd and his opponent hit him with a hard cross face, which was more like a punch to the jaw, he blacked out, and we were told once the wrestler loses consciousness, even for just a second or two, he is DQ'd. Even though my son was fine, and our trainer thought he was ok, the state staff, who didn't witness the match, said, sorry, but rules are rules. Looks like the rules have changed? Weird.

    I think the UHSAA really needs to look at this situation and how they handle situations like this in the future. From the reports that I heard, there was clearly some rules that were pushed way beyond what they should have been. Kudos to Cox for the way that he handled the whole situation. It would take a lot to have your hand raised as a state champion, only to have it taken away. What a classy kid! Go GV!

    Why would a kid be allowed to wrestle or do any sport after he has been knocked unconscious?

    Does the USHAA head injury rules not apply?
