Boy with cerebral palsy scores touchdown for team

Posted:
Eagleville, TN (ABC) -- A 10-year-old Tennessee boy with cerebral palsy scored a touchdown that captured hearts.

Preston Bryan is a member of the Eagleville Junior Football Team.

Recently, he asked his mother if he could play with his teammates.

"He wanted to be able to play with his teammates, and that's not possible normally," said his mother Brandy Braddy.

But Saturday's game was different.

Bryan's team and the opposing team agreed to let Preston run the first touchdown of the game.

Every player ran with him, along with coaches, referees, and members of the opposing team.

Preston was born six weeks early and has cerebral palsy.

His family says he doesn't let his disability hold him back.
