Double-amputee wrestler completes undefeated season, wins Alabama state title


PELHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Hasaan Hawthorne is one of the best wrestlers in the state of Alabama, and after winning the 6A 145 lbs State Championship and finishing his senior year undefeated, Hawthorne may be one of the best in the United States.

But what separates Hawthorne from other wrestlers isn’t his impeccable record, or accolades.

Hawthorne was born without shinbones and as a result, had to have both legs amputated. But that hasn’t stopped him from achieving success in the world of wrestling.
