CRASHING INTO POTENTIAL
Scott's life came to a crashing halt when his 450cc dirt bike slammed into his buddy in a head-on collision that nearly killed them both. With help of an amazing medical team, Scott pushed himself to the limit, setting goals and developing the will to achieve them.
Crashing Into Potential is the incredible story of coming to terms with acquired physical disabilities, living with an injured brain, and the unfailing determination to never give up.
