My Special Olympics life thru high school

By Eddie Hiller

Hi I am Eddie Hiller. I was once an athlete and I am now a Coach. I started in the Special Olympics at 8 years old up in Oscoda, Michigan. Then I was athlete in Panama City,Florida. I would like to thank the Special Olympics for encouraging me to play sports outside the Special Olympics. I was a league bowler in Panama City, Florida. I played 5 years of soccer. Two years in recreation league and three in high school soccer at A. Crawford Mosley High School in Lynn Haven, Florida a suburb of Panama City Florida. I played two years of junior varsity and my senior year I lettered at Mosley High School and I graduated in 1989 with the high school achievement award in physical education and I graduated with a letterman jacket my senior year at Mosley and I got the team leadership award. I will say this. It is a honor to be a part of a great organization like the Special Olympics. I always tell other Special Olympics athletes about my great times I had with Special Olympics.
