To hear him tell it, Essien Ture loves basketball more than most things. That’s why it was devastating when the Hammond High School junior found out last spring that he would have to have part of his right leg amputated due to blood clots.
But his love for the game led him forward, and despite needing a prosthetic, he still made Hammond’s varsity team in the fall. Ture’s perseverance has led him to be honored at the Ed Block Courage Awards on Monday, March 16.
