Number 50 in your game-day program, Steven Contreras

The thing about Steven Contreras being back on the football field, which of course is extraordinary, is that it’s really not.

Eight months to the day after doctors amputated the lower part of his left leg, Steven, who is a 16-year-old high school junior, got back in for about a dozen plays in the game that clinched the league championship. Last week, even though that knee was sore, he played again as his school, Rolling Hills Prep, moved to 8-1.
