Bio:

Varsity Quarterback/linebacker at Linfield Christian High School in Temecula, CA, Alex Ruiz, tore an artery during a tackle in his 2017 season. Alex was told to choose between keeping his leg and limping for the rest of his life or becoming an amputee and having the opportunity to return to sport with a running prosthetic.

This May, Alex was surprised by his quarterback hero, Drew Brees, who presented him with a new prosthetic leg. Alex returned to the field and has completed his first touchdown pass as an amputee.
