OCT 12, 2013 1:44a ET
After a sinus infection led to a condition that drew fluid into his brain, Cory Smith found himself lucky to be alive. Following four surgeries, Cory refused to let the sitution hold him back. What was his motivation? Basketball.
We profiled his courageous story in August, but Gary Payton wanted to do more than applaued Cory. The Glove flew Smith from Houston to join the crew on FOX Sports Live.
Before he takes the court for his senior season at Clear Springs High School in League City, Texas, outside of Houston, Cory took a trip to the FOX studios in Los Angeles. Joined by his mom, Tuesday Smith, he fit right in on the show.
Here is Cory Smith's special appearance as our Best Person in Sports.
