This is one of the greatest signing days you will ever see. Hanahan’s Cooper Dawson [South Carolina] picks Syracuse- but does it by first telling close friend Kingsley Feinman. Kingsley announces the decision- Dawson adds that Kingsley taught him the only disability is a bad attitude.
"Without further ado, I told Kingsley I'd announce it to him before I told anyone else, so I'll tell him and he'll announce it to y'all."
Dawson then whispered in Feinman's ear, and let him do the honors.
"He's going to Syracuse!" Feinman said.
Cooper Dawson from South Carolina brought a friend with him to his signing ceremony, Kingsley Feinman, who was born with cerebralpalsy and is in a wheel chair. Dawson, a defensive end from Hannah High School, picked Syracuse over Clemson and UCF, and did so by first telling Feinman his choice and letting his friend make the announcement.
Video of the announcement was shared by Scott Eisberg, the sports director for WCIV in Charleston, South Carolina, and the tweet had 15,000 likes in four hours. Dawson told the crowd gathered at the high school that Feinman taught him the only disability was a bad attitude.
Dawson missed his senior year with a leg injury, but said Feinman inspired him to keep a positive attitude.
