Awesome TD

High School Football Player in Wheelchair Scores Touchdown

Dylan Galloway has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. But that didn't keep the Manila (Ark.) High School senior from playing football. And on Friday night, he not only got in the game, he scored a touchdown.

The feat required the cooperation of the Rivercrest Colts which, it turned out, wasn't a problem.

In fact, Manila coach Toby Doke told the Jonesboro Sun that, "I called coach (Kelly) Chandler down at Rivercrest and he agreed to let it happen, and late in the fourth quarter we had drove down to the 3- or 4-yard line. We were about to score and we were going to try to do it on the last play of the game, but the mercy rule was in effect and the clock was running so I felt like it was as good of a time as any to do it right then.
