A Tennessee boy with cerebral palsy wanted to play in his team's football game. Thanks to his team and their rivals, he got his chance.

Preston Bryan is a member of the Eagleville Junior Football Team. The 10-year-old recently told his mother he wanted to play in a game.

The Eagleville coaches got together with the coaches for the opposing team, the Middle Tennessee Christian School. They agreed to let Preston run the first touchdown of the game.

Preston's father pushed the wheelchair while his teammates and all the rival players ran down the field with him.
