A Frisco seventh grader has caught the attention of the NFL Network for his inspiring story.
Tyler Sampson, 12, only has one hand, but that doesn't stop him from playing football.
"They underestimate me because I have one hand," said Sampson. "So that's what drives me to play and so it makes me want to go harder."
Sampson entered a video describing his drive to play in the Together We Make Football contest sponsored by NFL Network.
Sampson hasn't won yet, but caught the attention of the network. A network crew was on hand Monday evening recording footage of Sampson's Frisco ISD football game.
Sampson plays both offense and defense on the field and said he's been playing football since he was four-years-old.
The top five submissions in the contest get tickets to Super Bowl XLVIII in New York.
