Porter Ellett may only have one arm, but this high school kid has some great moves on the court.

OMG, people, get over yourselves. Can`t people like me be treated with some fraggin` dignity? We`re just like you, and can do anything we want, and I for one would appreciate it if people would stop "Ooh"ing and "Ahh"ing every time I get a can of peas off the top shelf at the super market. I`m not missing an arm, but my right hand IS deformed. Unlike the other people on here, I`m telling the truth. I`ll post a picture of it somewhere and send it in to fancylad just to prove I`m telling the truth, but it`ll probably be ignored...

That shows that even if you have a disadvantage, you can still dream.

And he`s missing heat vision, ice breath, flight, y`know, the usual stuff.

its so sad to think... he would be on like a pro basketball team if he had both arms. i mean he can do that much with 1, imagine what he can do with 2... =/ such a waste

I knew this kid growing up, he lost use of his arm when he fell out of the back of a truck when he was little. He had a second arm but it just dangled and a few years ago had it removed.

He plays for Richfield High in Utah, they lost in the semi-finals in the State Tournament, but Porter is an all state player.

Very inspiring.

Strange how some of us with TWO arms can`t even dribble the ball right...hee hee.

I suck at basketball! But this boy is awesome. People really can do anything with strong will, hope, and dedication.
