Special needs student scores touchdown for Windsor H.S. football team

ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A special needs student not only got to play in a recent Windsor High School football game, he took advantage of the opportunity and took the ball 30 yards down the field for a touchdown.

The play occurred after Grant, who has been on the football staff for years, was given the play call, and a little help from the opposing Greensville Eagles.

Announcer Jon Smith posted about the incident on his Facebook page.
