CFB10's Ruhly Finds Connection to SOTX Through Unified Sport
John Ruhly began volunteering with Special Olympics Texas in the late 1980's. He has been working with and driving Phillip Armstrong around to different events for years. Despite some wonderful athletes' mothers taking over the coaching of the bowling team around 2010, he still wanted to be involved with the Carrollton/Farmers Branch Cyclones' team and people, so he asked Phillip if he wanted to form a Unified team. Now, after every State Game, Phillip asks John to partner with him the next year.
