From medical mystery to kid captain

Posted: Updated:

We told you Liam Young's story last year - he suffers from an unknown illness.

Liam Young got the flu, but it soon turned into a scary infection that started attacking his body. Liam lost his fingers and toes to the infection. 

Now doctors are still trying to figure out how Liam got so sick, but his positive attitude kept him going.  He's getting ready for school in the fall. 

The three-year-old from Wisconsin will be the kid captain when the Hawkeyes take on Rutgers on September 24th.
