Middle School Football Team Stages Elaborate Play for Special Needs Child


(Video Link)

For weeks, the football players at Olivet Middle School in Olivet, Michigan schemed how they would carry out their plan. Their goal was to give Keith Orr, a developmentally disabled student, the chance to score a touchdown.

So the team ran the ball all the down to the 1-yard line...and stopped. They grounded the ball.

On the next play, the passed the ball to Keith, then pushed the opposing team back the yard that Keith needed to score a touchdown.

Watch this video from CBS News to learn about how this act helped the players sort out their own values and priorities.
