Last night, the ESPN program, E:60 highlighted a high school soccer player from Wheaton Academy in West Chicago.
The show boasts telling the "best stories in sports" and the inspiring story about Lexi Youngberg doesn't disappoint.
Youngberg lost her leg in a boating accident in 2009, just after winning the state soccer championship with her high school team as a sophomore.
She was forced to relearn how to walk with a prosthetic leg. With hard work and amazing motivation, she can now wake surf, snow ski and even play soccer again.

"It's a hard thing to overcome, but I've chosen to just keep moving forward and doing everything I used to do plus more." -Lexi Youngberg in interview with E:60
