This May Be the Greatest Middle School Touchdown Ever

Students at Olivet Middle School staged the perfect touchdown for a learning-disabled teammate

Even if you're not a huge football fan, you know that the game inspires grand metaphors about winning, losing, struggling and persevering. And there can be a lot of humanity out there on the gridiron. Case in point: The middle school football team in Olivet, Michigan.

The team recently surprised everyone by running a secret play that even their coaches didn't know about.  Dubbed the "Keith Special," the play allowed learning disabled teammate Keith Orr to score his first touchdown -- a feat that's nearly impossible to watch without tearing up.
