Senior Tackles Disability: The doctor tried to reassure Gayle and Craig that Tyler, afflicted with cerebral palsy, could still lead a fairly normal life. "He said there were two things he'd never do: Play piano and ride a bike," Gayle said. "He was wrong." Tyler was cruising around on two wheels before he was 5, an earlier age than both his older brothers had ridden. Despite the balancing issues with the less-developed left side of his body, Tyler found a way to make it work.

This is the football version of that kid who got to play in the last basketball game and wracked up 21 points. There are more stories like this that seldom see the light of day- bad behavior is so much more newsworthy.
