Washburn, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Washburn freshman defensive lineman Zack Anglin wears a pair of cleats that would make most high school athletes jealous, a pair specifically made for him and donated by the Green Bay Packers.

The 15-year-old was born without any lower arms or legs but is a staple of the Castle Guards junior varsity team with six sacks this season. When the Packers heard about Anglin, they chipped in to help get him shoes specially made in Superior by Bear Shoe Works.

Anglin wears a size 18 on one foot with a size eight on the other foot and has them taped to on before each practice and game.

"It's just something I was born with. It's nothing you can change so you have to make the best of it. Playing with these guys, they put a smile on my face every day. They're awesome guys, and it's an honor playing with them. I'm very blessed to be playing with these guys."
