OTTERBEIN, Ind. (WLFI) - A Benton County boy gets to be on the field at Saturday's Indianapolis Colts game after recovering from physical therapy.
Riley Hospital for Children chose Samuel Morris to be one of Saturday's Riley Coin Toss Kids.
Samuel is seven and was born with fibular hemimelia, a disorder that causes kids to be born with only part of a femur. He had to have a device in his leg that slowly stretched his leg to normal length over a few months and recently finished his physical therapy.
Samuel and his family will be riding to the game in a limousine and Samuel gets to toss the coin. He said he’s hoping for “heads.”
“Yeah, because I think it's the one that always wins,” Samuel said.
Samuel will be joined by 15-year-old Lafayette resident Baylee Biancofiori. Baylee was injured last year in an ATV crash in Warren County.
Food Finders unveiled a new online fundraising challenge that could raise an additional $40,000 towards feeding the hungry.
