ENHP Brings Amputee Basketball Team to Campus
By Nick Frogameni '12, '14
ENHP's Department of Rehabilitation Science students squared off against AMP1, the world’s only all-amputee stand-up basketball team, at the Sports Center on Thursday (Oct. 17). The AMP1 team showed off their skills despite their physical challenges, winning the game 58 to 48.
After the game, AMP1 players shared their experiences and knowledge with the many ENHP students in attendance. Students asked many interesting and insightful questions, were exposed to how prosthetic technology has advanced throughout the years, and how the technology truly changes lives for the better.

AMP1 players come from all over the country for one sole purpose — to bring hope to those in need, spreading the message to “never give up” and to “follow your dreams” no matter what the circumstances. The team is growing and hopes to expand into an organized national league. You can learn more about the AMP1 team at www.amp1basketball.com.
