Coach Dan Thompson

Dan Thompson, Kecoughtan's assistant football coach, holds his favorite football, which has signature of Mike London, University of Virginia football coach, at his home in Hampton. His walls are decorated with photos from football games and other memorabilia. When Dan Thompson's right leg was amputated below the knee in September 2007, he took it fairly well. He was fitted for a prosthesis and could get around. But about six months later, he lost his left leg and was confined to a wheelchair. He was depressed and didn't care about living. But getting back into coaching on Scott Woodlief's staff at Kecoughtan has been his salvation.  ORG XMIT: VANEW
