The Ultimate Underdog: One-handed division 1 basketball player the focus of new documentary 'Longshot'

At 19 years old, Kevin Laue made basketball history, overcoming obstacles Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson could never imagine.

Now at 22 years old, Kevin Laue is the first person in the U.S. to play division 1 basketball...with only one hand. Laue was born missing most of his left arm, but that hasn't stopped him on or off the court. His story is featured in a new documentary called "Longshot: The Kevin Laue story."

This morning on "Early Start," Laue and director Franklin Martin talks about Laue's incredible triumph and the new movie.
