On Feb. 14, 1974, Ross Cordaro, a gifted athlete and freshman football player for the Dunmore Bucks, was injured in a freak wrestling accident that left him a quadriplegic. His chances of walking again were very slim. Just 14 years old at the time, it led him to becoming the youngest patient at Allied Services for medical care and physical therapy. Through hard work and determination, Ross took his first steps just nine months after the accident.
Prior to the annual Thanksgiving morning game between the Bucks and West Scranton Invaders, Ross surprised the Scranton Memorial Stadium crowd by walking to midfield in an emotional scene.
