High School Football Team’s Heartwarming Game: Waterboy With Down Syndrome Scores 35-Yard Touchdown
As school shootings and bullying dominate the news, it is heartwarming to see a football team celebrating a senior with Down syndrome making a 35-yard touchdown and RadarOnline.com has the video of the awesome feat.
Noah VanVoreen, a senior at Little Chute High School in Clintonville, Wisconsin, is the Mustangs football team manager and waterboy and he started asking his coach to put him into the game in the third quarter.
“With 1.2 seconds left on the clock, Little Chute called time out. As the crowd chanted ‘Noah, Noah!' VanVooren jogged onto the field and lined up alongside quarterback Sam Merryfield,” The Post Crescent reported.
With both teams supporting his run, VanVoreen, wearing #14, ran 35-yards past the Clintonville Truckers to make his first touchdown and bring the score to 62-0 with a crowd cheering him on.

The first-year coach, Brian Ryczkowski, said he wasn’t sure if VanVoreen wanted to play, telling the paper: “I thought maybe Noah would be nervous,” but he wasn’t at all.
“I made a touchdown,” VanVoreen told reporters after the game.
“I did great!”
