Sports Day HS - Beggs is a 17-year-old junior at Euless Trinity who is transitioning from female to male, and has been the subject of much discussion after two of his opponents forfeited at last weekend's regional tournament in Allen. Beggs is a transgender boy and is taking testosterone in his transition from female to male. However, UIL rules forbid Beggs from competing as a boy -- the gender in which he identifies.
A lawsuit was filed two weeks ago against the UIL in an attempt to ban Beggs from competing, though the wrestler has not broken any rules. The UIL allows use of steroids under certain medial circumstances, and Beggs' family says the wrestler has been fully cleared to compete.
