teammate Nick Cooper was receiving medical aid. Cooper's heart stopped during his 182-pound final during Saturday's Cardinal District wrestling tournament at Forest Park. He was taken to Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center and his condition at the time is unknown.

According to a post on the Osbourn Park Wrestling twitter site 12 hours ago, Cooper was moved to ICU and had 2 fractured vertebrae in the neck but no permanent damage. A post 2 hours ago stated Nick was medically sedated and was scheduled for more testing today.

The Osbourn Park wrestling community is requesting prayers for Nick, his family and friends and the Osbourn Park wrestling team.
