Player makes touchdown in Senior Night game

Kieran Johnson is diagnosed with Williams Syndrome, a genetic condition that can cause developmental delays. During four years at Montwood High School in El Paso, Texas, he's been the football team's strongest fan. "He's been our loudest supporter," says the coach, "and for four years he's dreamed of suiting up for a varsity game."

"We thought it was a good time to get him out in the game for some action. He's super excited." In the second quarter of the game, a teammate handed Kieran the ball and he took off. "All I saw was the goal line and I went for it!" he said. "Game on! I tried and I made it, baby. I'm feeling great after that one."
