MUST SEE: Leroy-Ostrander Team Manager Scores A Touchdown
Scoring your first touchdown in a game is something you'll remember for a long time. Leroy-Ostrander was taking on Houston Friday night and it was in one play that the dreams of the Leroy-Ostrander team manager came true, he ran in a touchdown.
This is just a great display of sportsmanship, and honestly being a great human being. All of these young men deserve a pat on the back for doing what they did Brody Larson. The Minnesota State High School League's John Millea wrote it best when he tweeted that these young men gave "Brody Larson the opportunity to do something he has only dreamed of" scoring a touchdown.
In a tweet from the Rochester Post Bulletin's Isaac Trotter Brody "spent his whole high school career as a team manager. He lives with Hurler Syndrome." Tonight he simply was one of the guys.
According to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, Hurler Syndrome is "an inherited condition caused by a faulty gene. Children with Hurler syndrome lack an enzyme that the body needs to digest sugar. As a result, undigested sugar molecules build up in the body, causing progressive damage to the brain, heart, and other organs. Symptoms most often begin to appear between ages 3 and 8. Children with Hurler syndrome may have unusually large heads, joint stiffness, hearing and vision loss, impaired growth, and other symptoms."
Not only did ALL of these young men act with extreme maturity, they taught us all a lesson tonight too. That lesson? Treat others the way we would want to be treated. Look around you, it's mudslinging and name-calling everywhere you look because of politics. How about we all take a deep breath and simply enjoy the ride that is life? I know Brody is certainly enjoying his tonight.
