For Andrew Lawson of Norwell, Mass., being a three-sport high school athlete or even just one of the guys has never seemed like a big deal. To his parents, it couldn't be a bigger one. Born with Down syndrome, Lawson originally seemed to have a slim chance at an ordinary childhood. But over the years, his family and school, along with a very special group of friends, have gone above and beyond to fully integrate him into the community. Real Sports correspondent Frank Deford visits Lawson, now graduated from high school, and tells his inspiring story.
