High school football player returns to field after amputation
MONTANA -- A high school football player in Montana is making a triumphant return to the football field. Koni Dole's leg snapped just below his knee during the regular season finale last season. After several surgeries, his leg became infected and was amputated. Friday night, he talked about what it felt like to be back on the field.
"You know, that first time you step on the field after all that I've been through, I couldn't feel my body. It was just like... I don't know, just an indescribable feeling, Dole said.
Dole played nearly every snap in the first half, on both offense and defense -- scoring two touchdowns.
His team won the game, 45 to zero.
