Check out this inspiring clip from Sports Illustrated Underdog. This episode features Ispheming High School in Michigan. The episode features 19-year-old Eric Dompierre’s, place kicker, struggle to be allowed to play football his senior. Dompierre has Down’s Syndrome and was held back several years in his early school days. As a result he was ineligible to play his senior year because he turned 19 before September 1st. Dompierre’s dad Dean Dompierre started a campaign to change Michigan High School Athletic Association rule to allow disabled players who had aged out to be granted waivers to play.
