While Beggs' family says he wants to compete against boys, wrestlers are required to compete in the division that corresponds to their birth certificates, per a state police enacted August 1.
"Mack wants to wrestle boys and he'll never be recognized as a boy because of the birth certificate in the state of Texas", Lisa Latham said, per the Dallas Morning News.
Beggs, who has a 52-0 record, has a first-round match in the state tournament Friday in suburban Houston.
The league granted Beggs permission to take testosterone because he is using the hormone for a "valid medical goal", the newspaper reported.
Earlier Saturday, Beggs fell to his knees for a moment after his win in the final as a mixture of cheers and boos rained down on him.

UIL rules require students compete under the sex listed on their birth certificate. So Beggs was stuck wrestling girls.
His grandmother and guardian Nancy Beggs wasn't as diplomatic during a previous regional match after a girl forfeited, and added: 'Today was not about their students winning. The parent of a different wrestler actually filed suit challenging Beggs's eligibility on grounds that her extra strength from the testosterone could pose a physical risk to her opponents in matches. Not exactly. Mack Beggs was born female, is transitioning to male, and agrees that she should be wrestling in the boys' division. "We just want to wrestle. When you're using a drug and you're 10 times stronger than the person you're wrestling because of that drug that (shouldn't be) allowed".
