NEW PODCAST: David Cooks - Author, Speaker

THIS IS EPISODE 172 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

 

At the age of 15, high school freshman and avid basketball player David Cooks experienced a spinal aneurism, leaving him a T-6 paraplegic. Refusing to let the wheelchair determine the man, he made the decision to persevere from the very beginning — and he never let go of his passion for the game of basketball.

On this episode of the podcast, Cooks, who is now an author and speaker, shares his inspiring story of becoming a paraplegic, trusting God in the difficult times, overcoming and persevering, meeting legendary Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski from Duke, and why he decided to tell his story in his new book, “Getting Undressed: From Paralysis to Purpose.
