Making his brother proud

Posted: Updated:

Saturday's Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl is Walter O'Dell's final high school football game and the most important game of the Middlebury lineman's life.

Walter's 13-year-old brother Michael is his biggest fan.  He has an unknown condition.  A form of cerebral palsy is the closest diagnosis the family has received.  The eighth grader can't walk or talk, but he loves going to Walter's football games. 

The motto of the Shrine Game is 'Strong Legs Run so that Weak Legs Can Walk', and now O'Dell has the chance to help give back while his younger brother looks on.
