High school student with cerebral palsy shows football team what it means to never give up

By Gavin Porter

Things don’t always go the way you want them to. At Mooresville High School in Indiana, this football season was a disappointment. But thanks to one inspirational individual on their sideline, the thought to give up never crossed their minds.

Team manager Nick Crenshaw is a 16-year-old Mooresville student who has cerebral palsy. Not only does Crenshaw attend every weight room session and team function, he suits up in full uniform to be alongside the team during their games.

Crenshaw was forced to miss Mooreville’s Oct. 9 game after having eye surgery. The Pioneers dedicated the game to Crenshaw, and the team came away with a victory.
