Football Team's Special-Needs Waterboy Got the Call to Score a TD In His Final Game

If Tuesday's video of a Northwestern basketball walk-on being given a full scholarship warmed your heart, this clip is going to microwave it on high.

The members of the opposing Clintonville Truckers all gamely fell out of the way during the run, because they're not sociopaths.
