Let's talk about Nate

He could dribble a basketball with skill and precision as a third grader. He attended the same school as my granddaughter. I watched him play for two or three years, then he moved over to public school where they had a football program.
He came down with a sudden and confusing illness at about age 11. They had fund raisers everywhere for him. He spent many months in the Arkansas Children Hospital.
He made his recovery and entered into a contest to win a trip to the Super bowl. They choose several people who loved football and had overcome adversities to get an all expense paid trip to New York.
