Paralympian Blake Leeper received a wonderful surprise on Arsenio Hall’s talk show Monday evening. Leeper’s childhood idol, Bo Jackson, surprised the aspiring Olympian midway through the interview segment.
Leeper was born without his legs below the knees, and has lived with prosthetics since infancy. Early in the interview with Arsenio Hall, Leeper told the host how much he admired Bo Jackson. He had people call him “Bo” as a child.
When Jackson showed up on the set, his admirer could hardly contain himself. The smile on Leeper’s face when Bo expressed his pride in the Paralympian was a truly special moment.
