Calling an audible doesn't mean quitting

 When the Delta Eagles take the field on Friday nights, they all run out to the field together, no one sticks out from the crowd of blue and gold jerseys when they storm the field.

Even senior Brady Edwards, a three-year starter at center and two-time team captain, won’t really stick out from the huddle. And that’s just how he likes it.

At nine months old, Brady was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and has no feeling in the right side of his body. Despite that, he leads his team every week because he says he’s “just like everyone else on the football field.”

His father, David Edwards, has been on the Delta football coaching staff for over thirty years and is still impressed every day by his son.

“The things he can do with his body, with the disability is amazing.,” Edwards says. “And the fact that he’s overcome all that to prove that he can play at the Varsity level is, is amazing.”

Brady hasn’t ever thought of his cerebral palsy as a disadvantage, but rather a new challenge he has to overcome in order to help lead his team to victory week in and week out.
