    MOUNT WASHINGTON—When Luke Roby was four years old, his dad signed amputation papers for his son’s foot. Now, 11 years later, Roby continues to defy the odds as he finished his second year playing football for Bullitt East.

    In May 2006, Roby was playing in the backyard at his grandparent’s house with his older siblings. His grandfather had recently been in a car accident and was still in the hospital. Roby’s dad, Skee, had brought the kids along while he mowed the yard.
