Ben Holloway was diagnosed with dural arteriovenous fistula, a rare brain disorder, in April 2014. The 4-year-old was immediately sent to undergo multiple intensive brain surgeries over the course of a year.
After being told by doctors that the now 5-year-old would never be able to play football, his hometown high school, Murray County High School, had a better idea: The team organized a "game" for him to play in — and score his very own touchdown.
Ben, dressed in his helmet and uniform, grabbed the ball from the quarterback and started running. "Ben's reaction was like a kid at Christmas," Joshua said.
With a little help from his Chatsworth, Georgia, team, Ben got back up and sprinted toward the end zone. Go, Ben, go!
A few yards later, he did it! Six points for team Ben!
His dad and referee was waiting to lift him up in celebration.
Ben has since gone through one more surgery, and is so excited to be starting kindergarden. If you want to learn more and subscribe to Ben's updates, you can visit his GoFundMe page.
