Good News Saturday: The Blind Teen Sportscaster

Blake Tarrants

Many have had those dream careers in mind growing up.  Some wish to be in the military.  Others wish to be emergency workers.  Blake Tarrants wants to become a sports broadcaster.

He’s a senior at Blue Springs High School who broadcasts various games like basketball over the radio.  He knows the stats, the moves that the players make, and much more.

By the way, he’s blind.

The lesson for today is to never give up on one’s dreams, no matter the obstacles.  If Blake Tarrants can pull it off, then the sky’s the limit when it comes to dreams.
