The Ike Special...

Have y'all seen this? It will come as no surprise that I cried, but this is so touching to me! It's only 45 seconds long but well worth your time!

This high school coach designed a play for one of their players who has down syndrome. They were losing 35-0 and they put him in at the end of the game. The coach called the "Ike Special" and gave him the ball. You can see how the other players responded. It's great to see these high school coaches teaching these boys about more than football.



Happy Thursday friends! We're almost there...
