Bobby Martin is a one-of-a-kind football player. He plays full-contact without any legs. Bobby was born with a condition called Caudal Regression so he has never had any legs. That didn't stop him from playing one of the most physical sports in the World. Bobby was a star defensive player on his high school football team and he even got to play some football in College and the NFL. Learn more about Bobby in his Kidzworld Bio!

Bobby has lived his whole life with a positive attitude, and went after his dreams of being a professional football player despite having no legs. He runs by hopping around the football field with his arms and he's good at tackling players because he's so low to the ground.

Bobby ended up playing his whole high school career on the football team. He has run into battles with referees and league officials who have tried to keep him from playing the game, but in the end, he has always persevered to get to play despite what the rules say.

Bobby was loved at his high school for being such an inspiration. His senior year at Colonel White High School, he made 48 tackles throughout the season, and he was named Homecoming King. All of Bobby's teammates and friends have loved him and appreciated to witness such a story of overcoming adversity.

No Fear Career

Bobby is studying marketing at University to have a career as a business man, however his hopes and dreams of playing football have not stopped. Even though he never played NCAA football, he got to come out to a Kansas City Chiefs' practice and play with some of the pros. He kept trying and even tried out for the Cleveland Gladiators Arena Football League team. Despite not making the teams, he never gave up and people love to listen to him speak, especially children.

Pronouncing Positivity

Bobby is a great motivational speaker who talks about gang violence and drugs. Even though he continued to fail to play Professional Football, he is an amazing example of someone who remains positive despite living a handicapped life. All of us should remind ourselves how we should be positive and do the best we can!
