Brad Hurtig was a student-athlete in a small town in Northwest Ohio. Only days after finishing his sophomore year of high school, a devastating workplace accident resulted in the amputation of both of Brad's hands. Through hard work and determination, Brad soon rejoined his high school football team. In his senior year, Brad led his team defense, recording 111 tackles and receiving all-state honors all while playing with no hands. Brad's inspirational story of triumph quickly captured national headlines. Now Brad is taking his powerful message of workplace safety to businesses and organizations across the country.
