A banner brings an entire Mighty Mites football team to its knees
The Wallkill, N.Y., Mighty Mites team was coming off the field celebrating its 24-0 victory when it ran into a much stronger foe: A banner.
Watching these kid run dutifully into this pileup is oddly life affirming, especially No. 5, who gets to the action after all his teammates have fallen. He just decides, Me too, and jumps on.
A tip of the hat should also go to the cheerleaders, who continue to encourage the team even as the pileup grows larger and larger.
