Never Giving Up

One young man isn’t letting his disability keep him from playing the sports he loves.

Meet Seth Dille, "I Can’t do it" isn’t a part of this 23-year-olds vocabulary. He has Cerebral Palsy, it’s a disorder that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills.

"For me personally, it does not stop me from doing anything so I just go out there and do my best with kids that have that and they see all that I’m doing," said Seth Dille.

Owner of the Fieldhouse Mic Amicone has been training with him since he was 16-years-old. They focus on weight training, aquatics and specialized soccer instruction. When Seth first started, he was unable to use his right leg and now is actively using both.

"It means a lot to Mic and his family to be helping kids that have the same results as I have and it means a bunch to me because I have known Mic for a long time," said Dille.

Amicone said Seth is a voice for kids with special needs and is truly an inspiration. He recently became a minister and travels around speaking to youth about his disability and how it’s made him a stronger person.

"My advice to teens and children and kids is just to go out and do your best and try to be the best person that you can be and trust in yourself and rely on God for strength and if you do that, you’ll have a positive outcome," he said.

Seth is currently training to become a member of the U.S. Paralympic Soccer Team and also works with participants of the Field of Dreams program.
