Tyler Surprises His Teammates

(YouTube link)

Tyler Bain, a 7th grade student at Pine Tree Junior High School in Longview, Texas, was injured in a car wreck and has been confined to a wheelchair for ten years. He's a big football fan and is the manager of his school's 7th grade team, the Pine Tree Pirates. A month ago, he made the decision that he was going to walk in public for the first time at their final home game. When he told coach Paul Ellsworth his plan, the coach made him honorary team captain for the occasion.

Tyler said that none of his classmates on the team knew of his plans, and he walked to midfield of Pirate Stadium amid a roar of cheers from friends, family and teammates.

“I’m happy that I finally got to show what I can do,” Tyler said. “Even though I’m in a wheelchair, don’t go by what I look like. Go by what I have inside, a heart.”
