Garrett Haydon - Lincoln Sudbury Regional HS
SUDBURY, Mass. (WHDH) -- Friday, 7News was at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School to share the story of a very special student whose passion for sports is undeniable.
Garrett Haydon is a Class Act.
The 17-year-old junior is the voice of Lincoln-Sudbury High School sports - and he loves to call the shots.
Haydon does play-by-play for football, hockey, volleyball, lacrosse and basketball.
Haydon is an admitted sports nut.
“I’m pretty much obsessed with sports. Me and my friends will tell you that, that's probably what I talk about all the time,” said Haydon.
But because of muscular dystrophy, he can't play.
Haydon was diagnosed at age 3 and his muscles have deteriorated over time - but that doesn't stop him.
“Just don't see Muscular Dystrophy as an obstacle, kind of embrace who you are,” said Haydon.
“He's figured out through the years, how he can try and participate and be included,” said his mother, Meg Haydon.
Friends say Haydon's got game.
“I met Garrett in 6th grade,” said friend Fred McCluskey, “I didn't see the wheelchair, he was really nice, kind of exuberant, fun to be around.”
Haydon has big dreams, to make it to the big time.
Garrett also does a sports radio show at the high-school and he's hoping one day he'll do play-by-play for the Celtics.
