Steve McKee has died, about a year after he was told he had months to live.
You may recall McKee’s story from last spring, when his son wrestled for St. Michael-Albertville High School in the state wrestling tournament, with the intention of winning it for his dad.
In the process, the kids reminded us why high school sports can capture the best of us.
