Tex Hollywood - September 5, 2023

Kayleb Wagner is a 6 foot 1, 208 pound running back who just broke Derrick Henry's state record with 535 yards in one game in High School. He can also power clean 300 lbs and he does this all with one hand.

He was born with one hand, so he doesn't necessarily know a life outside of that, but that's definitely a handicap compared to the people with 2 hands, they have a one hand advantage. That's not to say you need two hands to be a Running Back, clearly Kayleb is letting that be known.

Whether it hold him back or it makes him push harder, because clearly he doesn't let it hold him back is clearly up for debate because it is possible that if he was born with two hands, he'd never put the work in to be as good as he is or maybe he'd be better.

He had his college debut for Souther Illinois Huskies, where he rushed for a touchdown.
