David Finley had no problem being admitted to his school. That's because he's in a class by himself, literally.

Finley is the lone member of his senior class at Butler High School in Custer County. It's the smallest senior class in the state. In fact, there are only 13 people enrolled in the entire school.

Finley says he would have liked to have played football, but the school isn't big enough to field athletic teams.

His father sees something positive about the smaller class size. He says his son has been forced to come out of his shell and be a leader.
