Scott Burrows was a star athlete and fierce competitor. By the age of 19, he played college football at Florida State University and was a top-ranked kick-boxing champion whose last fight was broadcast on ESPN. However, on November 3, 1984, he made a split-second decision that led to a tragic accident, changing his life forever. Bypassing his usual safety precautions, Scott decided to forgo wearing his seatbelt as a passenger in his friend’s car as they drove just one mile down the road to look for firewood for their bonfire.

That night, his friend accidentally lost control of the wheel, ran off the road and crashed into a mound of sand that sent the car hurtling through the air before tumbling back to earth, end over end, causing severe physical injuries. Scott broke Cervical 6 and 7 vertebrae in his neck and suffered a life-threatening spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic.
