An Inspiring Wrestler

Anthony Robles is a wrestler as ASU and he only has one leg.  Anthony has always had the determination to do whatever he has put his mind too.  Anthony is a die-hard raiders fan and always wanted to be a football player growing up.  He has played football and basketball which is amazing with only having one leg.  Anthony is a true inspiration that with determination and a positive attitude that anything can be achieved.  Anthony runs an 8 minute mile on his crutches!  That is an unbelievable statistic that he can crutch that fast for that long.  Anthony is an inspiration to his teammates, but I believe he can be an inspiration to everyone that wants to achieve something.  People like Anthony can put things in a different perspective and I believe can change people's outlook on life.  If students in my physical education class ever get down on themselves or are not believing in themselves, Anthony Robles story could be a great motivation tactic.  This is a great story and I always get amazed at what people are capable of.
