It has been six and a half years since Brock Mealer was told he would never walk again. The Wauseon native was seriously injured in the Christmas Eve 2007 car accident that killed his father and brother's girlfriend.
Mealer has already beaten that prediction, leading the Michigan Wolverines out of the tunnel at the Big House on September 4, 2010.
"I've made tremendous progress," said Mealer, who has worked with strength trainer Mike Barwis. "Getting rid of my ankle braces…that's been going really well for me, as far as walking, because since I don't have to have braces on, I'm walking more naturally, walking farther, standing up straighter, all those things that are important to me."
Mealer used canes to aid him when he walked out onto the field at Michigan Stadium. After proving the doctors wrong, he set another goal: to walk without canes. But it's where he wanted to do it that will bring a tear to your eye.
"Being able to walk at my wedding was an awesome thing, but having someone that I was marrying understand that goal for me, and when I was going to try to do it, was pretty big for me," he said. "It just made it that much more special. To make the wedding about her, even though I had this goal in the background, was pretty awesome. To have her share that moment with me and make this special day that much more special."
Mealer continues to inspire. He speaks regularly about the obstacles he has overcome, but he isn't ready to stop spreading his positive message.
"Even after I led the team out, I wanted to set the bar higher and think, ‘What can I do next?' The wedding was something I couldn't have expected to accomplish, being able to walk without canes. I certainly have a bunch of different goals when it comes to walking, that's inspiring to me."
