“Mom, I can’t do it. I can’t tie my shoe,” cried 6-year old Landus Anderson. His mother quickly corrected him, saying “Don’t ever again say you can’t do anything,” and taught him to tie his shoe with one hand. Landus was born with Erb’s palsy, a disorder caused by stretching of the nerves in the shoulder or arm at birth. Landus has limited use of his right arm; however he has grown up to become a college junior starter for St. Francis’ NAIA Division II basketball team in Illinois. Success on the court Landus attributes to his family, but the player’s positive energy cannot be overlooked: “I didn’t use my condition as motivation. It’s just the drive within me to be the best me I can be,” Landus said.
