Team helps water boy score touchdown

DETROIT, Mich. (CNN) – When you spot Robby Heil on the sidelines of a Novi High football game, he’s usually helping out with the water bottles, and wearing No. 24.

But not Friday. He and the team surprised Heil’s mother, Debbie Heil, with a particularly memorable play.

The senior, who has special needs, had always dreamed of scoring a touchdown, so that’s exactly what he did, running more than 20 yards into the opponent’s end zone.

Debbie Heil had no idea it was coming. Even the rival team took some time to honor Robby.

Novi’s opponent, South Lyon, also gave Robby a jersey.
