Alabama Christian school honors student with muscular dystrophy
The Press-Register in Mobile, Ala., reports:
Mobile Christian junior Harrison Leff received two standing ovations Friday night.
Leff didn’t hit a game-winning free throw or swish a game-winning 3-pointer.
Instead, the Mobile Christian family packed the school’s gym to honor Leff, who has a degenerative form of muscular dystrophy and is confined to a wheelchair. Despite his medical condition and lack of mobility, classmates and coaches said Leff’s outlook and attitude serve as a daily inspiration.
“I love having him around,” basketball coach Joey Adams told the standing-room-only crowd. “We’re just fortunate to have him involved in our lives.”
Leff serves as a manager, statistician and student coach for the boys basketball program. He has also worked with other sports, including football, during his high school career.
