After losing his sight in one eye, Isaiah Austin, was devastated about the impact it would have on his dream of playing basketball. His mother told him, "You have a choice. You can make this your excuse. Or you can make this your story." He went on, learned how to play with vision in one eye, and is a star player for Baylor University.
