We continue our Christmas Eve feel-goodery with this incredible story.
Will Fahey, a 17-year-old who suffers from cerebral palsey, recently got the opportunity to play high school football. Candidly, it was fucking awesome. That video got me more than a little choked up.
His mother is happy to see his dream come true. “He always said ‘mom you got to believe, one day I’m really going to play.”
Will is in his wheelchair most of the time because it’s painful for him to walk, but his coach says he’s motivated. Will says by taking the field Saturday he wants to encourage others with CP that anything is possible.
“It’s in my spirit I want to start a sport foundation with people with CP,” says Will. “(Football ) gets me connected to my team and my friends and I love being with them 24/7.”
Awesome dude right there.
