At age 19-months, COMERSVILLE (TENNESSEE) MIDDLE SCHOOL Eighth-Grader LUKE TERRY contracted the E Coli Virus , and; his entire right arm had to be amputated!!!
14-year-old COMERSVILLE MIDDLE SCHOOL BULLDOGS Catcher LUKE TERRY is currently doing some amazing things on the baseball field.
TENNESSEAN reports Mom DANA TERRY said;
"They put the PICC line in his arm (to treat the E. coli). And the bacteria went to his arm, where the PICC line was. It just started eating his arm away.
"They had to put (the PICC line) in because he had to have so many shots and blood drawn so much that his veins were just mush."LUKE is one of the top three players for the BULLDOGS and bats third on the team game day batting order.
DANA TERRY continued;
"He teaches himself how to do things and what's best for him. I try to show him the easiest way. Sometimes he'll do it, but sometimes he'll tell me he can do it his way better."
"He doesn't look at it as a handicap," Dana said, a tear running down her cheek. "He doesn't think about it.
"I don't look at him any different than the other players. He's just like them."-CCG
