In Play | Heart of a Wildkat

Despite being born with a heart condition, Kimball/White Lake's Beau Kirsch has been involved with sports for most of his life. This past summer, however, a heart attack derailed his ability to play sports during his senior year of high school.

He then found a new role with the Wildkats football team this fall. And as Beau says, when a door closed, a window opened.

Nate Wek is currently the sports content producer and sports and rec beat reporter for South Dakota Public Broadcasting.
