New York Daily Post:

For Trent Glaze, who suffers from muscular dystrophy and has lived in a motorized chair for the past 10 years, it was a dream come true…
Glaze, a senior at Fairfield Union High School in Lancaster, Ohio, joined the football team during his sophomore year. From the sidelines, he studied his teammates and gave them tips, trying to learn the game.

Fairfield Union coach Tom McCurdy calls Glaze his “right-hand man,” according to an interview with 10TV.

  • How uplifting, and a wonderful example of sportsmanship 🙂

  • What happens when someone tackles the kid? Anyone ever think of that?

    • findalis, I can’t speak for the team, but I believe this was a honorarium touchdown with both sides wanting to give this young man a special moment.

      • It sure looked like it. The other team was cheering him on, too 🙂

      • I certainly hope so. But on the sideline he can be useful to the team and an inspiration too.

        People with MD have a shorten lifespan (too short), but I do hope that this isn’t his only “Grand Moment”. I pray that he has many “Grand Moments” before he is taken back to G-d. Many, many more.
