     Madison Southern High School Senior Roger Rose loves basketball so much, that he plays with only one arm.

    Rose suffered a stroke at six that he says almost killed him. He says doctors told him he'd never walk or talk again.

    Rose has been a member of the Madison Southern basketball team all four years of high school.

    He practices with the team and occasionally gets into games.

    Naturally right-handed, Rose had to re-learn everything with his left hand.

    He says after high school he plans to attend EKU and then eventually UK where he wants to become a pediatrician.

    Madison Southern will play Scott County on Monday at 8:15pm at EKU for the 11th Region District Tournament.
