East Texas Native Arkansas Razorback Cheerleader With Prosthetic Leg Nominated For National Award (Video)

The Discover Orange Bowl-Football Writers Association of America Courage Award was was originally intended to recognize and honor football players. However, this week the FWAA decided to make an exception in naming the award’s nominee and it’s easy to see why they did.

The FWAA announced Wednesday that its third nominee for this season is Arkansas cheerleader Patience Beard, a full member of the Razorback freshman cheer squad despite having her left leg amputated as an infant due to a bone growth disorder. Nicknamed “the girl with the zebra leg” due to the unusual design of her prosthetic leg, the Texarkana, Texas, native has been cheering since middle school.
