Meet Rutledge! A kind-hearted 7-year-old who has a gentle spirit and doesn’t let anything hold him back. Despite the complications of having autism and Type 1 Diabetes, Rutledge continues to persevere and live his life to the fullest with his friends and family!
Rutledge loves all sports, especially soccer and football. He has started playing soccer for his local team and wants to be a goalie so he can wear his beloved goalie gloves.
However, his true love is Gamecock football! He has a large flag that hangs over his bed and he watches the Gamecocks play on TV every Saturday with his dad. He loves seeing the atmosphere, excitement, and action of South Carolina football!
When he’s not playing or watching sports, you can find Rutledge either playing with LEGO’s or spending time with his two older sisters.
Rutledge’s ultimate sports dream is to attend a Gamecock Football game and be “up close” to feel the energy and excitement he loves so much from home, but in person!
