    I bet you choke up after watching this: http://www.sportsgrid.com/ncaa-football/disabled-player-touchdown/

    Ike Ditzenberger, a high school football player with Down Syndrome, scored his first career touchdown for Snohomish (Wash.) High last Friday night. With the game out of reach, and Snohomish down 35-0, coaches for opposing Lake Stevens high instructed their players to let Ditzenberger score, but to make it look competitive. What resulted was rumbling 51-yard run, and a seriously great moment.

    Still are some great people out there.

    Pretty Cool, My oldest son is Downs and I also coach for his Special Olympics bowling.

    These kids (I say kids, some are my age;) are the greatest fun to work with. Always a joy and upbeat.

    I bet having this kid on their team was a positive experience for the rest of the team, not just for him.
