Teen With Developmental Delays Scores Touchdown in Football Game

High school senior Kieran Johnson loves to lead his school's football team onto the field. But at a recent game, the Texas teen led his team into the end zone!

Kieran has Williams syndrome, a genetic condition that can cause developmental delays and heart problems. However, that hasn't dimmed his love for the game. According to the team's coach, Ariel Famaligi, Kieran's passion for the team has spanned all four years of his high school career. He's been the team's biggest fan, and was thrilled to finally suit up and hit the field! As he was getting ready for the game, he said, "I turn on my beast mode and whatever happens, happens." 

And when, in the second quarter, his teammates gave him the ball, he ran with it!
