Cornhole player inspires at world championships

18-year-old Dayton Webber has spent most of his life without what you'd consider full arms or legs - but it's never bothered him.

18-year-old Dayton Webber has spent most of his life without what you'd consider full arms or legs - but it's never bothered him.

"I do everything everybody else does," Webber said. "And it doesn't slow me down. I don't have anything that slows me down."

Webber carried himself with confidence and swagger, standing tall at the World Cornhole Championships in downtown Knoxville. He said he practices three times a week, and he should get after it more often.

"I don't give up on what I do," Webber said. "First I try to succeed, and then I try to be the best."

Webber was born without a spleen, and at 10 months old, suffered a bacterial infection. He had to have his arms amputated below the elbow and his legs amputated just above the knees. The cornhole star said he's never looked at his condition as a setback, however.

"You may do things different than anybody else, but you'll still get 'em done," he said with a smile.

Webber drove himself from his Maryland home to Knoxville, has a full-time job in plumbing and heating, and has done sports like wrestling, football, and horseback riding. Simply put - he can make every shot in life.
