Caleb Smith is a Minnesota high school wrestler with no arms or legs — but that hasn't stopped him from excelling at the sport and inspiring others.

Today he's a 120-pound wrestler for Harding High School in St. Paul, Minn. His coach says Smith is stronger than most wrestlers at his weight and, while having no arms or legs brings some obvious disadvantages, it also helps Smith in that opponents don't know how to attack his unusual style. Teammates and competitors alike are inspired by his fierce determination.
