A sought-after speaker, Scott’s incredible story contains as many highs and lows as possible over such a short and storied life. It is a unique journey of success and failure that all starts with a decision and the desire never to quit, no matter what, no matter how long. His story is one of overcoming challenges to achieve the unthinkable.
Scott has inspired hundreds of thousands of physically challenged and able-bodied athletes worldwide. Unthinkable documents Scott’s remarkable journey from the devastating crash that claimed both his legs and his subsequent battle with depression and alcohol addiction; through his dawning realization that God has a greater plan for his life.
Scott Rigsby was 18 years old and injured in a catastrophic truck accident. This tragic event caused a traumatic brain injury, the immediate loss of his right leg below the knee, and forced him to endure 12 years of limb salvage and, ultimately, the removal of his left leg. After years of struggling, Scott turned his life around, reaching unprecedented heights as a world-class athlete, author, and motivational speaker.
