  1. I’ve seen Connor around campus and he is always unstoppable with a bright smile and a hello– something not offered by many. He’s an inspiration. Keep it up, Connor!

  2. Connor,

    It was really nice having you in my class last semester. Your story is inspiring. I am sure you will be successful in your future no matter what you decide to do because you have such a great spirt.


  3. You’re an amazing person, Connor. I can only dream to have the same indomitable spirit as you. I hope I’ll get to meet you around campus.

  4. This guy is my kind of dude. No quit in him !! What an inspiration to us all!! We need more men like this dude! I had the pleasure of meeting Connor at where else? A hoop game at BU. You rock dude!! Best Ken (Keith Drucker’ Dad)

  5. I am a member of the extended family. My nephew is associated with BU Athletics and I’m also very proud of him. Connor is an inspiration to everyone especially those who couldn’t participate in contact sports in life but want to be apart of the experience. My nephew Dylan has given this to me much like Connor is doing for so many others. Well done Connor!

  6. Conner, you are so very inspiring! I see you down the streets every so often. You always had a smile on your face, always so happy. I’ve always wanted to say hi and talk to you. Keep up the good work, and one day I know you’ll be the announcer for the BU men’s basketball :)

  7. Indeed–an unbreakable spirit you have, Richard (name by which you’re known to me), despite physical setbacks. What a pleasure to teach you; you radiate a warmth that permeates my CO 201 class. I’m blessed to know you.

  8. This is a great story. Kinda like the movies. I like how he inspires the sports guys and I like how the sports guy embrace him as their own. It’s win-win. Also, I think the Connor on this video is healthier than most people I’ve met. It’s all about spirit really. Thanks BU Today.

  9. So glad you’re getting treatment – I assume it’s bisphosphonates? My daughter is 18 with OI type 1 also, and had 8 weekly IV Pamidronate treatments from aged 14 – 17. It not only did great things for her bone density, it also significantly reduced her pain levels.

    Keep up as much physical activity as you can for good bone development. Your bone structure can’t be helped, but increased density and activity will give you the best shot for a happy, productive life.

    Sending happy thoughts your way from Canberra, capital city of Australia!

  10. What an inspiration to us all. Thank you Connor for being someone who makes us all want do more, explore our passions and better ourselves.
