Professional sports teams could learn a thing or two from this Michigan middle school. As pro players continue to get into trouble for various things, you have these little kids from Olivet Middle School going out of their way to let a special needs kid score a touchdown during a game. Humanity restored.
According to Elite Daily, Keith Orr is a special needs kid who apparently has captured the heart of the Olivet Eagles middle school football team in Michigan. During a recent game, a player was on his way to score after breaking several tackles. But, right before he crossed the goal line, he stopped. This set up a play where the team handed the ball off to Keith, and while protecting him, let the kid score a touchdown.
The whole thing was done without the coaches even knowing. And, it was all caught on tape. Watch this heart warming story.
