As the High School football season winding down, teams are making a push for the playoffs all around the country. Last Friday night in Virginia, two teams  put aside points and pride and made one player's dream come true.

Late in the 4th quarter the Atlee Raiders and Varina Blue Devils were battling it out on the grid iron when senior Sepp Shirley got into the game. See Shirley has cerebral palsy and he has trouble walking without his crutches, but he LOVES football.

He lined up at running back and on his first carry lost 2 yards. His next attempt, he took it 80-yards to the house! And get this, Sepp and his dad had the coach pass along the message that the kids on the other team could TACKLE him. Varina won the game 63-21.
