CHAMPION TEAMMATE: The Undertaker, Mark Calaway
CHAMPION HIGH SCHOOL TEAM: Hutto High School Football
Drew was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis when he was 11 years old. Nineteen months after the diagnosis, a series of illnesses led him to two more diagnoses—Lyme disease and occipital neuralgia.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection spread through tick bites. Occipital neuralgia is chronic pain in the upper neck, back of the head and behind the eyes. It is caused by damage to the greater occipital nerve, a spinal nerve that affects blood supply to the occipital artery.
His favorite quote is “When you get knocked down, get back up.” The Hutto High School Football team is excited to welcome Drew as their new honorary teammate this season.
