One Percent

Elliot Mealer was a successful football player at the University of Michigan.

On Christmas Eve 2007, he went for a drive with his father Dave, his girlfriend Hollis, and his brother Brock.
In a tragic twist of fate, his father and girlfriend were killed in a horrific car accident, and his brother was paralized from the waist down.

Brock was told he had a one percent chance of ever walking again.

Almost three years later, after intense physical training at the University of Michigan, Brock found his legs.

And not only that, U of M coach Rich Rodriguez asked him to WALK on the field and lead the Wolverines out for their first game of the 2010 season!
