One armed high school host inspires the Southern California community
Harvey Medellin, a graduate student at Golden Valley High School in Santa Clarita, California, has used his cutting-edge athleticism to overcome the lack of a single hand to become a wide receiver for high school universities, according to KTLA Los Angeles News Network. While not necessarily the biggest offensive threat for his team, he is athletic and skillful enough to pose a legitimate threat on the service or wing.
And Medellin - who lost his arm at the age of three weeks and his parents' vehicle got into a high-speed car accident as a bystander - is sure to stand above any normal expectation or threshold. All his life, he has refused to hold him alone. He is now being labeled a high school athlete who refused to give up.
"Harley is one of the most inspirational players on our team," Golden Valley football coach Dan Kelley told KTLA. "He's gaining more weight than most of our players."
