Wow

Not sure if anyone saw this before:

Carl Joseph was elected to the Florida High School Athletic Hall of Fame on Feb. 23, 2009. CBS Sports Dan Dierdorf calls him "the most amazing athlete I've ever seen." Carl's unprecedented exploits have been memorialized in this video, using old game footage that had been lost to Carl for the last 29 years. The video shows why he was a legend in his own time. From sacking quarterbacks to dunking basketballs, he didn't let the mere absence of a leg stop him from competing as an equal and even excelling in high school sports. His story of faith, courage and heart inspired millions on TV in the early 1980s.

Very inspiring. Makes me shut my mouth on days I'm complaining about how slow I am on my 2 legs.
