Home / Funny / Viral / Quadruple Amputee Becomes Pro Sportsman After Given Only 3% Survival Rate As Child


Dayton Webber's story  is one of perseverance against all odds. Webber is now a professional athlete in the American Cornhole League (ACL),  making headlines for his incredible pitching and impeccable accuracy. Even before looking at his impressive stats, the very fact that he has come this far is impressive and life affirming. Born in 1998, Webber was diagnosed with streptococcal pneumonia when he was 10 months old. The prognosis was grim, with doctors giving him only  a 3% chance  of survival. Both his arms and legs had to be amputated to save his life and prevent the spread of infection. After spending months  in the hospital, Webber matured into an ACL professional cornhole player and became the first  amputee in the history of the association.

Recently, a video of his incredible pitching went viral, and he even managed to get into ESPN's Top 10 SportsCenter. In a game in Milwaukee, Webber was recorded as throwing four  in a row while using his opponent's pocket as a back wall on his final pitch. Not only did he wow the audience at the venue, but he also won everyone's hearts with his amazing dance moves. 

It's not Webber's first foray into the sport, though his recent achievements in the world of professional cornhole have been in the spotlight. He started  wrestling at the age of seven, and four years later he had already won many matches. "I just love working out," Deighton told The Washington Post. “I feel like I can play sports and  show people what I can do—that I can do sports like they do. I feel like I can achieve anything if I  put my mind to it.”
