Dustin Carter is an extraordinary athlete. He finished his high school wrestling career with a 40-4 record. While he made it to the Ohio state championship, he did not win. Nevertheless, the crowd rose and gave him a standing ovation. The reason: Dustin Carter had a large portion of his arms and legs amputated when he was a young child. His legs were amputated at the knee and his arms at the elbow. He did not let his disability define him or get him down. He became a very gifted athlete. Win or lose in the traditional sense, Dustin is a winner.
