Bolton is as inspirational as it gets. His whole body continues to get stronger, his improvement in the pool walking, standing, single leg squats, and static lunges is A+

He was paralyzed after an accident at a party in 2018 in North Dakota. He was there playing basketball for Lake Region State College.

One of Bolton's best friends is his former high school teammate, and Toronto Raptors guard, Gary Trent Jr. Trent Jr. gets constant updates on Bolton's progress and is hands-on in the rehab process when in town.

Bolton, 23, plans on going back to school in the fall with aspirations to be an attorney.
