Jacob Ross

Name: Jacob Ross
Age: 21
Year of the Fix: 2019
Location: Stockton, UK
Campaign: To promote career opportunities for people with disabilities within sport.

I have Asperger's Syndrome, which affects my organisational abilities. 

I am also a huge football fan, referee and coach, with a level 2 qualification from the FA.

People with disabilities should not be discouraged from pursuing  a career in sport if it's what they want to do, and my Asperger's actually helps me a lot with remembering rigid plans and game drills in my coaching.

 

Just because I have a disability, it doesn't mean I don't have the ability.
