I had to share as this brought a tear to my eye. What an amazing person and great story. See good things do happen.




Teen in wheelchair scores touchdown in high school game (Video)

Trent Glaze is a senior at Fairfield Union in Ohio and he’s been using a wheelchair for the last 10 years because he has muscular dystrophy. The young man loves football and has been a manager for the school’s football team the past few years. After attending every team practice and function, he was invited to be on the team this year and serve as team captain.

Glaze’s dream was to participate in a game and that came true on Friday. Moments after his team lost to Teays Valley, both teams remained on the field so that Fairfield Union could run one more play: a handoff to Glaze. The youngster, dressed in full uniform and pads, took the handoff in his wheelchair and scooted into the end zone for a touchdown.

It really makes you smile when you see how the team rallied around him, and even the opposing team, to help him celebrate his touchdown. Not enough feel good stories like this.
