That was way AWESOME!!! He tore that place apart!

I've noticed that "handicapped" individuals are often made that way by those around them....

Not drawing from the obviousness of this video, but I guess a burning question that I would have is why wasn't this young man put in the game before now? He understood perfectly fine how it was played.... as he well let everyone see. There was no reason for him to not have played before, but that is a soap box that I carry with me at all times of which I will spare you with. smile.gif

My uncle had Polio as a child and was told that he would be "handicapped" the rest of his life.... he was determined that he was NOT. At his peak, he could bench press 650 lbs with a "handicapped" arm. He was always the one whom I drew my motivation from. He is missed deeply that's for sure.

Thanks for sharing... SJ
