A DAILY LOOK 'TWEEN THE HEDGES
Kyle Maynard -- the Collins Hill graduate and congenital quadruple amputee -- has won another ESPY, an award given out annually by ESPN for sports excellence.
#Maynard, who won the same award in 2004, won in the "best male athlete with a disability" category on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.
#The award came after his crawling up Africa's Mt. Kilimanjaro in January with a team of wounded veterans, friends and professional climbers.
#Maynard tweeted shortly after winning the award on his @kylemaynard Twitter account.
#"WE JUST WON THE ESPY!!!!!! Thank you so much!!! You helped make it happen!!!"
#His summit at Kilimanjaro's 19,341-foot peak was the first by anyone crawling up the mountain, and likely the first period by a quadruple amputee.
Bought the book "No Excuses" when the boys were struggling some in HS sports. Helped them through a tough season.
