The pressure of Friday night football takes on a completely different meaning for high school senior Chance Anthony. For the Kentucky athlete, it mean defying expectations on the field -- as a one-handed player.

Fox 41 reports that Anthony was born without a right hand, a disability that for many might signify a life without sports. But his football coach, Scott Mooney, attests that for Anthony, that's not the case:

"He wants to do things the way everybody else does," Mooney says. "Just seeing him catch a pass is incredible, but you need to come into the weight room and watch this young man power cling. He bench presses 235 lbs. -- and he's basically doing that with one arm."
