Rural Nebraska Teen Overcomes Obstacles to Show Pigs

Rural Nebraska Teen Overcomes Obstacles to Show Pigs

August 17, 2016

A vehicle rollover, resulting in a spinal cord injury, took away Brandon Breunig's ability to walk. After trying several types of physical therapy, the standout athlete and livestock exhibitor was closer to walking tall once again. 

Fast forward less than four months into the future and Brandon continues to overcome, showing his pigs July 30 at the Saunders County Fair.

The 17 year old takes it all in stride as he puts everything he has into getting back to where he wants to be. "Don't feel sorry for yourself," he says. "Get up every morning and go to the gym and work as hard as you can to get back to normal. That's where I'm at, you know. I had a week to feel sorry for myself in the hospital, but now it's time to get to work."

According to KMTV News, Breunig now goes to physical therapy twice a week. He will miss his senior football season, but hopes to play basketball later this school year.
