Aug. 16 2004 Josh and his brother had a small trampoline set up seeing who you could do the highest flip over a tower they made. Josh tried to do a front flip, landed on his lower back, and was left paralyzed from the waist down. He is currently a T10 complete paraplegic.
Since his accident, Josh has been involved in basketball, skiing and track and field. He was a starter and helped his basketball team win 3 back to back national championships. Josh also got the privilege to represent team USA at worlds for track and field in Switzerland.
