"One day after school, before our season started, I saw this young athlete with his racing wheelchair and asked him if he did road races or what. He told me he trains for track meets; I told him he needs to be a part of our high school team, and he is. Our high school track team has close to 300 athletes, and to make this young man feel as part of team during warm ups, team meeting, traveling, talking about scholarships, and training has been no different than any other student athlete on our team."  -Arizona High School Track & Field Coach
