Living the Dream of Football in Kansas

By Donna Zimmerman

"Special Olympics is the greatest thing that ever happened to me," says Special Olympics Kansas athlete Cody Pierce. Cody has a heart condition that requires he avoid contact sports, but he can live his dream of football through Special Olympics flag football. Pierce and his fellow New Hope Bulldogs player Chevi Peters trained and worked hard to attend the Special Olympics National Flag Football Tournament in Nebraska. Learn more about Cody and his quest for football glory in the video below.
