True sportsmanship

This video is already a few months old, but got 400k youtube hits already, and since so many professional sportsmen (especially footballers) are becoming less and less sportsmanlike, I wanted to share this video with you.

Noah VanVooren has been the manager/waterboy for the Mustangs football team at Little Chute High School in Clintonville, Wisconsin, throughout his high school career, but during a game against the Clintonville Truckers, VanVooren took the field for the very first time.

VanVooren was diagnosed with Down syndrome at birth and doctors told his parents he would never be able to walk or talk.

But the doctors seemed to have forgotten to tell VanVooren himself! He’s currently going to graduate from his highschool and is loved by his classmates and town alike.

For each of his schools’ American football matches, he’s their waterboy/manager so he can get to be close to the game.

In one of the games, the head coach decided to call out his name to go onto the pitch.
Hut, hut, hut, and 35 yards later, VanVooren scored adding the last touch-down to the final score of 62-0

Enjoy the video & I dare you not to feel anything after watching it!
