WADSWORTH, Ohio (KTNV) - When Ohio student Zach Patterson was ten months old, his parents made the tough decision to have his foot amputated so that he could live a normal life.
Years later, Zach started playing soccer. Then baseball. And then football.
But as he continued to excel in sports, it became clear that his prosthetic leg was holding him back. Even worse, insurance companies wouldn't cover the $40,000 athletic performance prosthetic to help him step up his game.
