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. Last Friday, on senior night at Little Chute High School in Wisconsin, the team's long-time waterboy, Noah VanVooren, who has Down syndrome, was brought in to score a rushing touchdown on the last play of his team's final home game, a 62-0 win. The members of the opposing Clintonville Truckers all gamely fell out of the way during the run, because they're not sociopaths.
