We get knocked down buck get back up again. That’s a saying that most of us use when something in life hurts us, but we try to persevere and get back in the game. Well, Tre Lawson is the living embodiment of that saying. He’s not only getting back up again, he’s hoping to inspire others while doing it.
All throughout high school, Lawson was one of the top track athletes in the country, but things took a tragic turn in 2017. After winning a track meet, he got into a car with a group of friends and the driver fell asleep at the wheel. The vehicle went off the road and crashed. Lawson suffered serious injuries including damage done to his head, abdomen, and spinal cord. He woke up in the hospital nearly a month after the accident occurred.
