Teams work together to help boy with cerebral palsy score touchdown

Two teams from Texas - the Barbers Hill Eagles and the Pearland Vikings displayed the embodiment of good sportsmanship when they worked together to help a boy with cerebral palsy achieve his dream of scoring a touchdown.

On Saturday, Vikings player Ian Webb ran into the end zone for a 55-yard touchdown and a standing ovation from the crowd.

In the play, the ball was snapped to the Viking's quarterback and handed off to Webb. Webb took off with the ball as his teammates surrounded him and cheered him on.

Members of the Barbers Hill Tifi Football Organization said they were proud their players could participate in "one of the most rewarding of all of the lessons that you learn on the grid iron - how to give back to something that is bigger than a score on the board, a tackle, or any one play."
