“Really excited,” Ryder said about this weekend's games. “Racing,” he said, was his favorite part.
Ultimately, Ryder wants to be a Paralympics athlete. Brian said they wouldn't push him to work toward that goal if he would ever stop pushing himself.
“He learns a lot by watching. We watch videos on the computer of kids like him that are doing this. He just likes to get out there competing with athletes like him. There is no reason this will hold him back.”
The Endeavor Games will be held in Edmond at the University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond North High School and Lake Arcadia. The Games run Thursday through Sunday.
