Aedan Brogan was a 7th grader from Murray Middle School, when three weeks before the state tournament, he broke his wrist in two places doing Tae Kwon Do.
This would have been Aedan’s first time being able to compete at the state level after the pandemic. After having his cast put on, he believed his chance to shoot in the 2022 state tournament was over and having lost another opportunity to compete.
Aedan’s head coach, Lourdes Oster, heard of Aedan’s situation post-accident and immediately offered to teach him how to shoot his bow drawing with his teeth.
In less than three weeks, with a lot of practice and a sore mouth, Aedan was able to compete at the Kentucky State Tournament. His score wasn’t perfect, but the smile on his face from being able to compete at state said it all.
He taught his teammates a lesson of overcoming obstacles and pushing forward without knowing what is in front of you.
