Vikings K Ryan Longwell makes a difference for the Vikings by using his leg to kick FGs and PATs. Mia Hamm makes a difference for her team by using her legs to play soccer.

But Longwell and Hamm are making a difference in a young athlete’s life by lending their support.

Bree McMahon is a 17-year-old standout soccer player who lives in the Orlando area. Recently, she was involved in a car accident that resulted in the loss of her leg and both Longwell and Hamm have been a big part of her ongoing recovery.

The Today Show on NBC reported on this story and you can see the Today Show segment by clicking here.

Longwell resides in the Orlando area with his family.

    Agreed, that’s a shame when bad things happen to young kids, teens. Glad to see that some professional athletes do the right things
