Updated: Feb. 7, 2012 - Wounded Warriors feature from ESPN:
Bethlehem-resident Dan Lasko, a junior at Kutztown University, lost his leg to an IED in Afghanistan, but it wasn't enough to slow this flag football athlete!
Lasko, a criminal justice major at KU, competed in the Wounded Warriors Game in Indianapolis, Ind., on Wednesday, earning the game's Most Valuable Player award with five touchdowns and two interceptions. The game was played as a part of the festivities leading up to Sunday's NFL Super Bowl XLVI.
See an interview with Lasko and his teammates Sunday morning, February 5, on the 7 a.m. edition of ESPN's Sportscenter.
You can also see footage of the team in warm-ups in this news clip. Lasko is shown catching a pass at the 1:45 mark on the video.
