I saw this video yesterday and had to re-apply my make-up. The wonderful young men on a middle school football team in Michigan have a deeper understanding of the game that many pros may never reach. The Olivet Eagles football team at Olivet Middle School in Olivet, Michigan, decided to run a play and intentionally not score, all without their coaches knowing. The football team planned the play for weeks, all so they could set up a very special moment for a special boy. Keith Orr is a special needs child, and his buddies on the football team decided to give him the chance to run for a touchdown. Sheridan Hedrick, a player on the team, would’ve easily scored a touchdown, but he instead took a knee on the 1-yard line, and the crowd wasn’t happy. That was until the next play happened: the “Keith Special.” The ball was hiked and quickly handed to Keith, who ran forward as his teammates protected him from the oncoming defense. Keith scored without a scratch. The boys did much more than help Keith score a touchdown; they brought more than a community together, because this video has gone viral. It has touched many lives for the better. I hope this video touches you the way it did me. (Go get your Kleenex, you’re going to need it!)
