Local resident defies odds to built houses for Abernathy

ABERNATHY, TX (KCBD) -A few years ago developer Steven Qualls was in a serious accident and was told he could never walk again. Today he not only walks, but develops subdivisions. Qualls is a little shy and didn't want to talk to us, but we found someone who was glad to talk about him.

"He's my hero. He was in an accident and suffered some really serious injuries and he's gone through remarkable rehabilitation and I don't ever think of him as having any outstanding problems from it, but he's really overcome a lot a great deal and he never let's anything get him down. He just bounces back from everything and he's very inspiring," says Angela Brown.

Steven Qualls' company plans to build as many as 100 new homes in Abernathy in the next few years.
