The Seattle Seahawks may have won the Super Bowl, but they’re not the biggest stars in the football universe.
Isaac Lufkin is a 14-year-old boy who plays for Classical High School in Providence, Rhode Island.
Oh, and did we mention that he has no arms?
Isaac, who was born without arms, is a kicker who helped guide his team to the freshman football state title. He led his division in onside kick recoveries.
Isaac harbors big dreams, claiming he wants to play in the NFL for the Ravens.
He’s also fiercely determined not to let his handicap affect him:
I don’t like people helping me because it makes me feel like I can’t do it. If I drop my backpack and somebody helps me pick it up, I drop it again and pick it back up. Because if I can’t do it, nobody else is going to be able to do it sooner or later.”
While Isaac’s story is amazing, he’s actually not the first of his kind at Classical. In 1963, the school also had a kicker without arms. That team won the state title.
