Guest Speaker LeRoy Butler

Guest Speaker LeRoy Butler was born severely pigeon-toed and spent much of his early youth in a wheelchair. Doctors predicted that he would be lucky to ever walk unassisted. At the age of eight Butler discovered that he could not only walk, he could run pretty well. And so his incredible sports career began.
