Jacob Rainey continues to inspire many as the former Woodberry Forest quarterback now walks on at the University of Virginia. Rainey talks about his future as a Cavalier, and how grateful he is not only to have a chance to have football in his life, but to have the chance inspire others to never give up hope.

Jacob Rainey continues to inspire.

In the fall of 2011 Woodberry Forest quarterback Rainey broke his knee in a scrimmage. After several complications, doctors were forced to amputate part of his right leg, almost ending his football dream.

His story quickly spread across the nation as he worked to get back on the field. He did return to the field for his senior year, where he scored three touchdowns for his Woodberry Forest squad in his final season.

Rainey will now continue his football dream at the University of Virginia as a preferred walk-on and assistant coach to offensive coordinator, Steve Fairchild.
