In 1985, Scott Chesney was a normal high school Sophomore. He was a standout basketball player and all around competitor. All signs pointed to a successful career in high school and on into college. In December of 1985, everything changed. Chesney went to bed and woke up the next day with no feeling in his foot. That feeling began to spread up his legs and eventually stopped just below his belly button. Doctors told him that he would never walk again due to a spinal stroke.
In this podcast, Chesney details his mindset while transitioning from an athlete to being wheelchair bound, his journey of self discovery as he travels the world and how his sports career impacts him to this day.
