In this photo taken Aug. 12, 2010, Indiana State kicker Brett Sheldon walks off the field following NCAA college football practice in Terre Haute, Ind. Sheldon is the 22-year-old backup kicker for the Sycamores and it so happens that he was born with short arms and hands with three fingers. The birth defect didn't stop him from chasing his dream of playing college football and making the team as a walk-on. (AP Photo/Darron Cummings)
