There's "heroic effort", and then there is heroic effort

There's way too much use of "heroic efforts" to describe NFL players these days. This is what I would call a heroic effort - someone who does what they are told they lack the ability to do. It's just unfortunate that there is always someone in the crowd that is working against them.

The story spilled from the page like blood. It ended up where all these stories end up, in the center of my stomach, dead. Next to it was a picture of the player, a Dayton high school footballer named Bobby Martin. He has no legs.

The story said the referees told him he couldn't play. They leaned on a national high school rule that says every player has to wear shoes, thigh pads and knee pads.

Even players without feet, thighs or knees.

If it's not the PC crowd it's the other "not my rule , I just enforce them" types.

I the kid gets another shot.
