Neal Maddox's Lucky Charm

Neal Maddox finished second at the 2013 NorCal Regional. An emotional Maddox explains he felt guilty being at the Regional when his mother was in the Intensive Care Unit. 

Now, we get to meet his mother. "Do you know, if it wasn't for my son, I wouldn't be standing up walking right now?"

The doting mother talks about her son's drive and determination in all aspects of life. "He has the goal, the will to succeed, and I always said blood, sweat and tears," she says. "I mean, he's got the strive and the drive."
