GOOD SPORTS

DOUG FLUTIE

Doug Flutie of the Buffalo Bills is the NFL's smallest quarterback. But he led the Bills to the AFC playoffs and played in his first Pro Bowl last season.

Doug created Flutie Flakes cereal to raise money for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation. Doug's son, Doug junior, is autistic. (Autism is a brain disorder that affects a person's ability to communicate.)

"Nobody can tell you what you can accomplish in life," says Doug.

BIRTHDAY Blowout!

S.I. For Kids is celebrating its 10th birthday this year. We asked an athlete to tell us about his favorite birthday.

"My best birthday was when I turned 11. My dad took me and three of my friends to an amusement park.

We did everything. We rode a double-loop roller coaster. And we ate as much junk food as we possibly could."
