High school football is alive and well, and so is good sportsmanship at that level.
Jake Hyde is a senior at Vestavia Hills High School in Birmingham, Ala., and according to his sister, Amy, he has Down Syndrome.
Knowing Jake’s passion for the game, Vestavia Hills huddled up with Friday night opponent Briarwood Christian to draw up a special play so he could have an unforgettable moment on the field.
Once the ball was snapped, it was handed to Jake who took off up the left side of the field with both teams running next to him and everyone in the stands chanting “Jake!”
Amy got the touchdown on video and posted it to Twitter:
My brother, Jake, is 18 & a senior at Vestavia. He also happens to have Down Syndrome. Tonight 2 teams helped to make his dream come true! pic.twitter.com/uLoP3KH8KR

Who can argue with a play call like that?
