Team Supports Kicker with Autism

The video for this story is amazing. What a team. Go Tommies!

MINNEAPOLIS - Football players can take and deliver some hard hits, but one of the Edison Tommies is tackling autism, trust, forgiveness and friendship in his senior year.
FOX 9 News first introduced Aaron Jones there years ago when he began playing football for the team. After moving away for a few years, Jones returned to Edison -- and his role as the Tommies' kicker.
Until a couple of students taught him a gang sign, that is. Jones repeated the sign on the street and was chased by a group of teenagers. His mother then told him she didn't want him to play on the team anymore, and he stopped.
