    Amazing, I used to play rep baseball against a kid who had one disabled arm. When we first saw him we laughed at him, being immature 12 year old boys. Then he ripped a liner into the gap and we realized he was their best player. Truly incredible, some people use hardship as an excuse, others use it to elevate themselves and inspire the rest of us.

    Kid is a smokeshow, too.

  • Zach

    Two things: I love mixed gender forums, and he has a better jump shot than most other players.

  • A Fan

    You inspire me to be great kid!!! Keep up the good work!

  • Jeff

    He also stunt doubled for Marty's brother in Back to the Future. Multi-talented guy.

    I know the guy! Well kinda lol used to watch him play when I was like 13 lol

  • The Ron

    i couldn't believe it when i saw his name, i knew him when i was in the Missionary Training Center. he'd always play basketball when we had gym time. it was funny to see all the new missionaries when they saw the kid with one arm was on their team, and then to see their jaws drop as he drove the basket.

    this guy is awesome.

    What a load of crap. If you beat him- big deal, you beat a guy missing an arm. If you lose to him, LOSER! You lost to a guy with one arm!
