OKLAHOMA CITY - A young man who donates much of his free time coaching T-ball to 4-year-olds is the newest recipient of Pay It 4ward.

Billy Suttles had all the talent and determination to be a successful baseball player.

In the spring if 2000, Billy was in a car accident and he was not expected to survive.

His endurance and the family's faith pulled the teenager through a three week coma.

Billy had to learn to walk, talk and eat all over again.

He was determined to somehow, someday, be a part of baseball.

Billy now invests all of his spare time into the T-ball team, the Rangers.

Leslie Fillmore's son is on the team.  She says she is grateful to Coach Billy for the sacrifices of time and money he makes for the pint-sized players.

Because of Billy's kind heart and giving nature, Leslie nominated him for KFOR and Spirit Mortgage's Pay It 4ward.
