A Special Moment in Missouri High School Football

Another feel good moment in high school football that you won't want to miss.

Matt Ziesel was granted a special moment in a Missouri high school football game. The 15-year-old has Down Syndrome and always dreamed of scoring a touchdown.
The opposing team, which had a huge lead, let him run for a score late in the blowout game.
Ziesel plays for St. Joseph Benton. He ran for a long touchdown against Maryville.
Maryville led 46-0 at the time. The Benton coach asked the opposing coaches if they would grant the kid’s wish. Ziesel had never played in a game.
Check out Matt's play.
