Calling Georgetown College football's Kody Kasey inspirational is putting it mildly. The junior continues to impress, motivate and encourage his teammates with his heart, athletic abilities and drive. Every year veteran coach Bill Cronin hopes for a leader such as Kasey, but this year it almost seems God ordained to have him back in the huddle and on the field.
"Kody is a special individual, and we knew it the moment he arrived, but to see it further unfold with what he's been through is hard to put in words," Cronin said. "He's been a rallying force and a strong reminder to walk through difficult times. This year has been filled with its share of difficult experiences, but every day we come together as a family to practice and play, loving and supporting each other all the way."
Kasey underwent a larger than life test following a leg injury midway through his sophomore year in 2014. He was sidelined all of 2015 as countless surgeries to fix his broken leg failed. It became evident that the only option for a regular life would be to amputate it below the knee.
