Sinus Infection Causes Vision Loss for Teen

Sanders, who will be a senior at Waltrip High School in the fall, already has seen an improvement in his football skills. Before his surgery, Sanders could run fast and lifted weights to stay in shape. But his football coach, Anthony Zuccarini, said his football catching skills left much to be desired. "He couldn't catch a cold buck naked in a snowstorm," Zuccarini said.

Zuccarini had no doubts that Sanders would have been a starring player well before now had he been playing to his full potential, unthwarted by his allergies.

But Sanders, who now plays as the defensive corner back and receiver for his high school's varsity football team, is well-poised to take on the fall athletic season and and to begin applying to colleges.

"Ray's catching the ball right now like nobody's business," now that his sight and his breathing have improved, Zuccarini said. "I get to put him to work next year."
