Marquette's Chris Outle plays with glass eye (Picture)

As Marquette continues their run in the 2013 NCAA tournament, center Chris Outle has been a large reason why the Golden Eagles have chance to win it all.

Outle's story is even more memorable since he only has one eye and plays with a glass eye during games.

We learn more about Chris artificial eye from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

“I was born with one eye, actually, and the other one wasn’t fully developed,” Otule told The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “So I had to get an artificial (left) eye, since I was one or two. And every time I grew out of it, I had to go back to the doctor and they’d make a new one. 
“I’ve always had one eye. It didn’t happen in the middle of my life; I’ve had it since birth. If I hadn’t had it since birth, it would probably be difficult to adjust to. But I’ve always been used to it, since I’ve had it since birth.”
