On rare occasions a young High School student, with a disability shines, be it in academics, athletics or just in life. There is a young man in Mason, TX with one arm that plays football, tennis and throws the shot-put, among other things. His name is Brodey Taylor and the below is from his coach:

Many of you guys have had the opportunity to see one of my tennis players, Brodey Taylor. Brodey lost his right arm (yes, he was right handed) in an accident when he was a young boy. He is one of the most extraordinary young men I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. Brodey has been nominated for the High School Rudy Awards for his accomplishments. This is a national award for young men and women that overcome the odds to succeed. Brodey epitomizes the Rudy Award. Not only does he play tennis, but he also is our starting (and all district) center on a 12-2 football team. If you have never seen a young man balance 135 lbs with one hand and then press it over his head 8 times…well, it is an impressive sight. He is a inspiration to all our athletes. Combine this with the fact he is #4 in a very competitive class.

With all this being said, I’d like to ask two favors from each of you. Please pull up the website below and vote for Brodey for the Rudy Award (this will take less than 2 minutes), then pass this on to as many people that you can. This young man is so deserving of this award, it would be a shame for him not to receive the recognition that he deserves.

Here’s a story on Brodey: http://www.gosanangelo.com/news/2010/nov/11/one-arm-no-handicap-for-mason-player/
