NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — You may have seen the commercial on Super Bowl Sunday from Microsoft, featuring children with disabilities playing video games with an X-Box adaptive controller.

One person right here in Middle Tennessee uses the same controller: Houston County high school student Jefferey Cox.

Jefferey was paralyzed from the neck down after he was hurt last fall playing football. He uses one of the adaptive controllers to play the Madden Football game.

His mother posted a video of him using the Microsoft controller, saying it is a 'great company for thinking outside the norm'.
