Nigeire Poyser

A football player since age eight, Nigeire was thrilled to ultimately join his high school football team at age 16. Because his school district offered student athletes heart screenings, he participated and reported that his heart seemed to race and beat abnormally during practice. Following up on those warning signs, an EKG revealed Nigeire had Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. After an ablation and recovery, Nigeire was cleared to return to football. The heart screening enabled him to safely continue playing the sport he loved.
