Austin Wenger is graduating high school with a basketball scholarship to Colorado Christian University, but when he was growing up, athletics looked like they might be out of the picture.
The 18-year-old was born with dyslexia, and a doctor advised his mother that organized sports might be too stressful for him. Despite the prediction, Wenger has been playing basketball for almost a decade.
"I think I proved it wrong," Wenger said. "I think I overcame [dyslexia]."
Wenger attended a private school specializing in learning disorders for part of elementary school. He no longer has problems in the classroom or on the court.
