The John Price Law Firm and FOX24 are teaming up to recognize student athletes in the community who have excelled athletically and scholastically.

Our November honoree is Deondre Ford, a sophmore at Fort Dorchester, a track athlete in the Special Olympics and a member of his football team.

Deondre who was born with cerebral palsy. He is not defined by his disability but by his warm-hearted spirit in everything he does. His mom Renee said that although he may have to work longer or harder to get the task done, he never gives up. This past year Deondre placed first in the 50 meter dash and 3rd in ball toss.

Deondre loves watching horror movies, listening to music and watching YouTube. His favorite food is mac and cheese and pizza!

Congratulations to you Deondre and best of luck!
