Porter Ellett – The one arm Basketball Player

This story is about character, determination & the attitude of a champion.

Porter Ellett lost his right arm in an accident when he was a young boy.  He helped his school win a state title in baseball and is now leading the basketball team in the playoffs. From his previous match, he has 16 of his team’s 50 points, with steals, rebounds and a blocked shot. His coach, Kade Morrell, calls him a natural leader for the team.” source

From the video (you can watch it from here), you can see a steal followed by a lay-up, with JUST ONE ARM!! It is really inspiring to see someone fighting and rising above ‘dis-ability’ with such character and at such age – showing that with enough character and determination, anyone can be a champion! 

Hats off to you, Mr Ellett!
