No matter whom he's guarding on the court, Greenville (Ohio) High School sophomore Will Coomer knows he's already faced down far tougher opponents. In fact, Coomer's mere presence on the court is an incredible achievement when you consider everything he's had to deal with.

Coomer's troubles date back to preschool, when the hearing in his right ear began to fade. By the time he reached 2nd grade, he was completely deaf in that ear.
