“Watching a child’s confidence grow from Nub Camp and our coaching is the greatest feeling in the world. I am so proud to watch the next generation of these adaptive athletes grow.”

About Eddie

Limb Difference: Congenital

Type: Missing Left Hand

Sport: Football

Former Defensive end, Eddie Delaney, played Division I football at UAlbany. Despite being born without a left hand, the 19-year-old Holtsville, N.Y. native thrived on the gridiron. He garnered Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week honors in only his second career start and co-led the team in pass breakups.

Even some NFL scouts asked about the muscular, 6-foot-6, 250-pound during his senior year, which is when he was elected a team captain — just as he was at Sachem East High — and was the top returning tackler on the defensive line.

When he was six, Delaney was diagnosed with Type I diabetes. The news was especially devastating to his parents, who understood that their son would have yet another hurdle to overcome. Eddie had to give himself two or three insulin shots a day until several years ago when he got hooked up with an insulin pump that includes a tube that was inserted into his leg and is protected on the field by only his thigh pad.

That’s right, Delaney played Division I football with only one hand while carrying an insulin pump on his left leg.
