    That was amazing. Well done to both teams to overcome rivalry to gift something like that to a kid who obviously loves the game – and in a playoff game! I love winning as much as anyone else, but this warms the heart. Well done to both teams on a wonderful show of sportsmanship – something that is sometimes lost in the excitement and ferocity of football. It takes a big man to lay a hit, but an even bigger man to extend his hand and pick the guy up afterwards.

    he will forget though, patients with down syndrome run a much greater risk of developing dementia.

    Couldn't they at least pretend to run defense against him? Make it feel a little more authentic?

    I have an autistic brother and to see a team do this just warms my heart to know that there are people out there who are willing to do something like this. I just wish more people were like this.

    Not sure what to think. I mean, the kid has an extra chromosome, so isn't he advantaged kinda like juicing at the genetic level?

    This is a nice gesture by the opposing team and all but I work with an adaptive recreation coordinator and we were talking because this has happened a couple of times in washington already. It's good and bad because it shows that people care and have heart but it's giving these kids with down syndrome the wrong idea. What's going to happen when they leave high school and everyone else goes off to their next step in life? People in the real world are not going to do things like this and it's making these kids think that this will happen later in life. The kid that was able to do the same thing here in washington got so big headed that he would grope young girls because he thought it was okay because he was the big man on campus. It's giving them the wrong idea and shouldn't it be enough that they are able to suit up with the players?

    I don’t understand what makes people talk shit about mentally handicapped people… Get a fucking life. What happened in your life that you have to pick on these people? I’d bet everything I own that all of you guys are incompetent little fucks who never succeeded in anything and now your trying to get a little attention by throwing words like retard around. Get a fucking life, tools.
    Much love to that team, we used to do the same thing at my highschool for another team. It takes one minute of your time but affects his life forever.

    Someone should have sacked him for a loss, stripped the ball, and ran it back for a touchdown.
