Diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy at the age of eight, Max was told that his life going forward would be limited. Max knew his limitations, but didn’t want to accept that he wouldn’t be able to pursue his dreams, which included playing Division I football. Connecting with coach Jerry Kill provided him with hope and motivation to push beyond his expected boundaries and limitations. Today he is pursuing a Master’s degree and has moved from punting at the NAIA level to being a Division I punter at Western Illinois University. Max is using his platform to prove that a rare diagnosis doesn’t limit your ability to play sports at the collegiate level.
