First up, Chance Anthony, a senior at Breckinridge County High School in Hardinsburg, Kentucky.
Chance was born missing the lower half of his right arm, and many thought sports would never be an option for him growing up. Of course, his parents refused to let anything hold their son back from experiencing the joys of athletic participation.
I'm so proud to say that Chance achieved his goal. And now, he's one of 50 High School Rudy Award finalists.
Chance plays both football and basketball at his high school. He started playing football as a freshman and has excelled over the years. Now a senior he starts at both wide receiver and linebacker. He is the teams leading receiver with 15 catches for over 200 yards and two touchdowns through six games. He is a true leader on the team as a captain, and always shows a great example to the younger players.
He is not only a great example on the field but also in the classroom and in his community. He has a 3.6 GPA and is hoping to study law enforcement in college.
Chance volunteers on the weekends as a football referee, and food drives put on by the church. He is an inspiration to many, and his whole community would love to see him win the Rudy Awards.
