Vincent Award #49: Riley Quinn

This week's Vincent Award goes to Riley Quinn. Riley is an 18 yr old senior with straight-A's and plays three sports (football, basketball and baseball). You might think at first glance that this sounds like a lot of teenagers (albeit very successful teenagers), but you would be wrong. Riley only has one arm. Riley was born without a left forearm because a broken amniotic band cutoff circulation while he was still in the womb. Riley's Dad says this about Riley:

"Riley always had that inner drive and fire. Honestly, if he had both hands, he might just be a typical good athlete. Not having that hand just made him work that much harder and made his passion burn that much deeper."

Keep up that fire Riley...
