This segment from the 2008 Young Heroes Award Ceremony features a profile of honoree Hartman Brunt, a senior at Catholic High School in Baton Rouge. Brunt, a promising football and basketball player, suffered a severe knee injury that severed the primary nerve to his feet and ended his athletic career. Despite this setback, he is an honors student, a student minister, and a tutor to middle school students at St. Francis Xavier Catholic School. He is also a tireless volunteer and fundraiser for several causes. Hosts: Cory Mayon and Beth Courtney
