A Special Member of the Team

He is the first player to be in uniform and the first to emerge from the locker room and onto the practice field.
As the players count off their calisthenics, he counts the loudest.
When equipment needs to be moved, he is the first to grab it and lug it to the other side of the field.
He is Marcel Green, No.73 on the Detroit Crockett High School football team, which advanced to a Division 3 regional final.
And he has autism.
