Stony Point football player defies the odds

Stony Point player breaking the mold.

Round Rock Stony Point sophomore Ayrton Hignojos has big dreams of playing in the NFL one day. 

Currently he's a center and kicker on the Stony Point JV team, but he's unlike the rest of his teammates.

Hignojos was born without his left arm. While in the womb, he had an amniotic band restriction which prevented his arm from growing. However, it has never held him back before.

"Just don't let it faze you, keep pushing, work hard," said Hignojos, "Even though people might underestimate you, just keep pushing through it and don't let that affect you."
