High school teams show great sportsmanship

Sometimes you find a video that just makes you smile and, perhaps, shed a tear or two.

This is one such video.

Little Chute is a high school in Wisconsin and their football team’s water boy, Noah Van Vooren, is a senior with Down Syndrome.

With the team up 60 in its final home game, the Mustangs, who had Van Vooren suit up for the game, brought him in for a play.

Lined up in the backfield, Van Vooren took the handoff and, with help of their opponent, Clintonville, raced down the field for a touchdown.

While the score may have only been symbolic and not count in the box score, the videos below prove it carried far greater significance than the game itself.
