Special Olympian urging Arizona support

PHOENIX -- A Special Olympian is encouraging the community to support him and all of the other athletes at the upcoming Summer Games.

"When you see our athletes compete, I guarantee you'll have a great time," said Jeff Steron, a unified golf professional.

"Unified golf is when a person with an intellectual disability competes with a person who does not have an intellectual disability," he said.

Steron has been competing in unified golf for several years and admits he's quite skilled in the sport.

"I hit with one hand and I can hit the ball 200 yards," he said.

The Special Olympics Summer Games start at the beginning of May.
