Rohan Murphy - Just One of the Guys
Penn State wrestler Rohan Murphy knows that when he takes on an opponent in the 125-pound weight class, he always will be at a disadvantage--not because he hasn't trained harder than his opponent--or that he isn't stronger. Murphy, who also is a champion weightlifter, was born with a birth defect that led to the amputation of both of his legs. The junior kinesiology major hasn't allowed his disability to prevent him from competing in college. Even when he gets stares from those who don't understand his disability, Murphy doesn't let it side track him. He relies on his competitiveness, discipline, dedication and drive with the consistent support of his teammates.
