East Coast Cripplers: On Their Way to USQRA National Championships

Hampton Roads' wheelchair rugby team, the East Coast Cripplers, is on their way to the USQRA National Championship Tournament next week. Featured in the movie Murderball, quad rugby "bears little resemblance to rugby and instead has elements of wheelchair basketball, football, soccer and ice hockey."

This video shows interviews with some of the players, who talk about why they play.
