IKAN User Profile: Ben Lux, Florida

My buddy Ben Lux is one of the original members of our Central Florida area Quad Squad group.  Ben actually had the top overall score for an IKAN User, a 183 on May 10, 2004.  Ben isn’t able to bowl as frequently as he did back in 2004, but he still enjoys bowling when he can.  Aside from bowling, Ben particularly enjoys watching movies and his favorite football team, the Jacksonville Jaguars.  But, above all for Ben is his faith: God first, everything else second.  Amen, Ben!

Here are Ben’s answers to the profile questions…

About billgator97

I started this blog to highlight how wheelchair users, especially power wheelchair users, are being empowered through sport, in particular: dynamic wheelchair bowling. It's actually bowling that emulates the able-bodied bowling process, i.e. setup, then physically approach and release the ball upon stopping short of the foul line. I happen to be paralyzed from my neck down, and ventilator-dependent, yet I've actually bowled 24 legitimate games of 200 or better. I say that NOT to brag, but to show what is possible and make the point that ANY wheelchair user who can safely operate their chair, they can bowl (I helped invent a device that makes it possible). Please look around and feel free to ask any questions! Thanks and God bless!
