Talk about overcoming adversity

https://people.com/sports/espys-2019...verance-award/

Rob Mendez, Football Coach with No Limbs, Honored with Jimmy V Perseverance Award at 2019 ESPYS


Wow - Just wow. I had never heard of Rob Mendez before this morning. I saw a clip on the news. This guy is amazing and should be an example for everyone, especially those that piss and moan I can't because, because, because.

My hat off to you, sir! God Bless!

Just goes to show if you have the will, there is a way. It's not poor, poor me.

I'm not looking to promote my own thread but I'm amazed that there are 550 views and no comments. This guy was born with no arms and no legs. Taught himself the rules of football from video games and is now the head coach of a HS football team. An amazing accomplishment to say the least but I guess there's nothing to see here.

Climbs off soap box.

Happy Friday boys and girls.

EDIT - It does have a few likes from my faves

Inspirational without a doubt. It's people like this that make me want to throw rocks at the majority of society.

Just another piece of evidence that the US is the land of opportunities
Your fate is what you make , not the circumstances and excuses people tend to make for poor life decisions
