Smile through the Storm...

My Story...

There was nothing more that I enjoyed growing up than being around my friends and playing sports.  This all changed at 16 years old when I slowly started losing my sight.  Although life can be difficult at times, losing my eye sight has shown me that hard times don't last.

Through the eyes of others...

“Every now and then in life we get the honor to meet a difference maker.  Will Lambley is just that, a difference maker that makes the choice to overcome adversity every day.  Helen Keller said it best when she said, “The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.” Will continually lets his light shine for all to see, while he has more of a reason than most, to allow circumstances to dim his countenance. As the Head Football coach at Rejoice Christian, I was blessed to coach Will in high school. The mantra of our program is “Rise Above”, which refers to how the eagle flies towards incoming storms and rises above the chaos below. Will exemplifies our Rise Above mantra. Will said it best when he said, “the only disability in life is a bad attitude.” No matter the odds, Will chooses to Fly Anyway!”
