Show of Sportsmanship

Two highschool soccer teams worked together to let a player with Down syndrome score a goal. It was the last game of the year. Ross, who has Down syndrome, had played soccer for years, but never scored a goal. He normally was brought into the game near the end of each game, but this time something special happened. The opposing team's coach asked Ross' coach to let their teams work together so Ross could score a goal. He did & both sides were thrilled.

You can see a full news story on it here.

Thank you for posting that; I don't tend to watch the news or morning shows, so I had not yet seen it. What a beautiful story. :)
