The team is made up of athletes who live with disabilities. Each player has a different story. Many, like David Cross have served our country. Cross was injured while in the military. He was hit by an IED, and lost his leg as a result. "I can only play physical sports," he said. "I tried golf, it was too boring. Getting out there and playing competitively is everything to me." For U.S Veteran Carrie Frank, playing sports has provided her purpose. "When you're able to play stand-up sport for such a long time, and then you can't, you have to forgive sport and then you have to drive on," she said. "Without the Greater Adaptive Buffalo Sports Program, we wouldn't be able to do this as adults." The team was assembled last season by Norm Page, the President of the Greater Buffalo Adaptive Sports Program. The team will play against 11 other teams across the country this season, in two separate tournaments in Chicago and Salt Lake City. While these players hope to come home with a trophy, the ability to play this sport is a priceless gift players like Carrie Frank say has saved their lives. Concrete Gridiron at 6:00 pm.

THE LIVELY ONE: DICK BRANNAN'S RISE TO DRAG RACING FAME tells the unlikely story of a racing legend who captured multiple records and led Ford Motor Company to national prominence during the "golden age" of drag racing. In 1962, Dick Brannan, a virtually unknown driver, showed up at the Detroit Dragway in a Ford Galaxie to compete against some of the biggest names and fastest cars in drag racing. At the time, Ford was struggling to make a mark in this popular sport, falling behind fellow Motor City auto makers in capturing the attention of the youth market at the track. Ford cars were generally considered too heavy to win. However, that changed the day the 22-year-old underdog went on to beat more than 60 other cars and take first place. Following his win, Ford appointed Brannan race coordinator of their factory drag team. Brannan's racing knowledge and automotive innovations would help rewrite the history of one of America's most iconic brands. Narrated by actor Peter Coyote, THE LIVELY ONE chronicles Brannan's career, his contributions to the sport, and the ways in which he transformed Ford drag racing during the 1960s. The film features interviews with Brannan, fellow drag racers, car enthusiasts, and automotive and racing historians. The Lively One: Dick Brannan's Rise to Drag Racing Fame at 2:30 pm.
