My mom Julie DiMatteo and college teammate Casey Teagarden filled in for me yesterday back home in PA. They had the pleasure of meeting a true inspiration, Tyler Hepler. Tyler was born with a generic disorder called Ectrodactyly, which is the deficiency or absences of one or more central digits of the hand or foot. Tyler battles this on a daily basis ...Instead of feeling bad for himself , Tyler has been doing the opposite...with the help of staff members at Daman's Strength Training and the support of his family and friends , he has reached his first goal of many... to suit up and destroy people on the football field. Good for you Tyler , never quit ... never give in .. keep fighting!!! Hard work doesn't go unnoticed. You have a bunch of new fans rooting for you buddy!!We hooked Ty up with a bunch of new gear and we are sending the family to the Steelers home opener!!! Well deserved!!
