Who would’ve thought my wife watched something on ESPN before I did and who would’ve thought she’d be in tears after watching it? This is a fantastic story about Anthony Starego ~ an autistic high school student who is the kicker on his football team. Check it out by clicking the picture below or clicking here.
USA TODAY also did an interview with Anthony that you can read here. What a great story! His favorite college team even had him on field to kick some field goals during a practice and honored him with a custom jersey. Classy . . . and very very cool. I bet this is something that Anthony will never forget!
I mentioned we’ve had our boys in a soccer league. We are on hiatus for the winter and it’s been a fun, and challenging experience. There are some things we picked up throughout the year but their coach has been fantastic and hey, maybe they’ll be star athletes like Anthony! :)
If you want to see another awesome story ~ check out anything on Clay Marzo. I mentioned him a few blogposts, ESPN did an article on him, and there’s even a special from ABC NEWS. I’ll be mentioning him in a few upcoming posts, found out about more surfing groups and autism! Stay tuned!
