Football team carries out surprise play to help a special teammate

Posted: Updated:
OLIVET, MI -

For weeks, the football players at Olivet Middle School in Olivet, Michigan secretly planned a remarkable play for their teammate.

Keith Orr is learning-disabled and struggles with boundaries.  Because of his special nature it's no surprise that Keith embraces his fellow football players and they embrace him.

In early October, the team carried out their surprise play at a home game.

The first part of the play was to try to get as close to the goal line as possible without scoring, even if it meant taking a dive on the one yard line.    Then, their teammate Keith came in and scored a touchdown.  It was one game he’ll never forget.
