The Ike Ditzenberger Special Touchdown: Great High School Football Video

4

I saw this video of a touchdown run by Ike Ditzenberger in a Washington state high school football game featuring Snohomish vs. Lake Stevens. The back story is that Ike is a student with Down Syndrome, and he trained for the “Ike Special” play for the last three years.

The game was a blow out, and Ditzenberger’s touchdown was the only score his team made that day. With all the bad things you hear about, it was nice to see sportsmanship like this in a high school football game.

Thanks to Donna for letting me know about the video.
