Since the age of four, Kamron Clark, has been battling a kidney disease called Focal Sedmental Gloumerial Sclerosis. This type of disease would end most athletes careers, but this was not the case for Kamron who always knew he wanted be out on the field no matter what it took. Kamron’s perseverance and heart is what makes him one of the 12 finalists for the 2010-11 High School Rudy Award. Kamron along with the other 11 finalist are striving to win a $25,000 college scholarship.
Kamron’s battle with kidney disease has been a bumpy road but you would never know with the positive attitude he has toward life. He has had two kidney transplants, and endless hours of dialysis. There have been moments throughout his journey when recovery almost seemed hopeless but he has always pulled through thanks to the support of his parents, friends, and teams.
This fall, Kamron returned to the football field after a long recovery from his second kidney transplant. He was more than excited to be back with his team for his senior year. “He will never be more than 5 feet tall and he may be the smallest guy on the team, but he has the biggest heart and wears the biggest smile,” wrote his proud mother Terri Clark.
