University of Alabama tennis signs fourth grader with rare immunodeficiency

The University of Alabama men’s tennis team added the least qualified player in its history on Thursday and yet none may have been more celebrated.
As reported by the Tuscaloosa News’ TideSports.com, the Alabama tennis squad held an official signing ceremony for 11-year-old Caleb Holcomb, a local fourth grader at Englewood Elementary. The celebration was set up by the nonprofit Team IMPACT, which organizes the incorporation of children with illnesses into athletic teams to boost their spirits and goodwill.
