His mother said she couldn't be prouder of her son, who is blind in one eye and has glaucoma in the other.

"This is something he wanted to do and something I thought would build his confidence and self-esteem," said Teira Canty. "And considering he can't play basketball of football and this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."

The national contest is invitation only. White plans to enter more competitions and get invited to the national contest again next year.
