A dream can end in an instant. Fletcher Cleaves knows this all too well.
His dream of joining the starting line-up as a college football player was taken from him in a matter of seconds. An oncoming driver, distracted by looking at her phone, drifted into Fletcher’s lane. The accident left Fletcher with a broken neck, paralyzed from the chest down. It ruined his hopes of ever playing football again.
But Fletcher’s spirit isn’t broken. He has teamed up with AT&T to spread the It Can Wait® message. His story, Fletcher’s Drive, debuted on ESPN College GameDay earlier in the season.
Last week he was invited to ESPN SportsCenter to share his life-saving message. He reminded everyone of what could be lost by looking at your phone while behind the wheel.
