With his team holding a huge lead over UTEP on Saturday, a small running back for Rice University got a chance to fulfill a dream.

Jayson Carter, a 4-foot-9, 135-pound walk-on, got a handoff for his first Division I carry with about six minutes left in the game. He gained one yard off right tackle.

Yahoo! Sports says Carter was born with a genetic disorder that hinders his growth. He played high school ball and has spent three years on Rice's scout team.

Carter told the Houston Chronicle that he did what he was supposed to do: Not lose any yards.

Little man. Big heart.
