Michigan Middle School Football Team Devices Plan to Let Special Needs Player Score – And Their Coaches Had No Idea [VIDEO]
There may be hope for the future after all.
It gets tougher and tougher each day to find the good in the world with stories of shootings, gridlocked government, and a still-struggling economy. But that doesn’t mean there ISN’T still good out there to be found.
For example, the Olivet Eagles football team at Olivet Middle School in Olivet, Michigan. A group of young men who have opened their arms to a fellow classmate with special needs and made him part of their team.
Without their coaches knowledge, the players designed a play they called the “Keith Special” which would allow their friend and teammate, Keith Orr to score his first touchdown in a real football game.
The goal was simple, get as close to the goal line without scoring, then on the following play get the ball to Keith and make sure he crosses the goal line. It’s a touching story that will restore your faith in the idea that the world will be alright for future generations. Well done, young men, well done.
