TJ to Tiffin

TJ_5

Today TJ Richardson has beaten the odds!   

TJ, a St. Francis High School senior in Louisville was told he'd never play a collegiate sport but today his naysayers were proven wrong.

Many affectionately refer to TJ as a One Hand Wonder.  Due to a birth defect, TJ only has use on one hand.

He accepted and sign a scholarship to play and attend Tiffin University where he will play tennis and basketball. 

Tj's mother Tracie said "the odds didnt matter because he never felt they were against him, you could never tell him that he wasn't normal because normal is all he knew. He may have done some things a little different but don't we all. FAITH, COURAGE, PERSISTENCE, RESILIENCE. I AM TRULY BLESSED TO BE HIS PARENT."
