Faith helps high school pitcher overcome adversity

BROWNSVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- A senior at Haywood High School, Landon Wilson wrote as his farewell quote in the yearbook, "Like I have always said, four years at Haywood High School will cost me an arm and a leg." Classmates told Wilson that it was the funniest senior quote in the yearbook. Humor, faith, family, friends and baseball have helped Wilson not only cope with the loss of his left arm but remain positive. While running 200 yards from his home in Brownsville, Tenn., last Oct. 26, a pickup truck pulling a lawn mower trailer hit him from behind. His left arm was barely hanging, and his broken right leg was in danger of being lost, too.
