My Special Hand – Episode 10 – Soccer

Shake warning. Our 9 year old camera-man wanted to follow the action with this video so there is a fair amount of shake, but it just immerses you in the action.

Sam’s older brother has been playing soccer for a quite a few seasons. Sam wasn’t all the interested in playing until this past year. We started him up and he has a love/hate relationship currently… he loves playing around, hanging out with new friends, and scoring goals… he hates running for long stretches and he hates not being able to changes the rules if they aren’t suiting him.

This summer we went to NubAbility Athletics summer camp and Sam got to learn some new soccer skills from Eric Westover, the goalie from the US National Amputee Soccer team. (See Episode 9 for footage) Since the camp Sam’s confidence has been better on the field and he’s had more persistence as well… the video is from before the camp, hopefully later this fall we’ll do an update video.

What’s your favorite sport?

Thanks for watching, we’d love to hear from you in our comments!
