A touchdown scored at North Stanly High School last Friday was something special.
It didn’t win the game. It didn’t set a school record, but it touched the hearts of everyone who witnessed it.
Every day, Daryl Colon comes out to football practice at North Stanly High School.
He straps on his shoulder pads and his helmet knowing he won’t use them, but he may be the most important member of the team.
“It’s a blessing to see someone with his condition to come out and practice with us,” said senior defensive tackle Dee Bennett.
Colon suffers from cerebral palsy.
“He’ll come out of the locker room smiling go back in smiling if you’re having a bad day he’ll cheer you up,” said senior center Dalton Johnson.
