MANDEVILLE, LA (WGNO) –  When you see one Louisiana sixteen-year-old, ready to wrestle for his high school team, you wonder if he sees you.

WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood wants you to meet an inspiring kid from his “Wild Bill’s Amazing Kids” brought to you by our friends at Best Chevrolet.

His name is Gianni Toce.  Gianni is a junior at Mandeville High School.

And Gianni is blind.

Or a better word to describe him is used by his coach who calls Gianni, tough.

Gianni has been blind for half of his sixteen years.

Wild Bill asks him, “do you ever say why me?”

Gianni says, “a long time ago, yes. Now I say, why not me?”
