HIGH SCHOOL PLAYER WITH CEREBRAL PALSY SCORES 80-YARD TD

He could…go…all…the…way. Touchdown!

A high school football player with cerebral palsy ran for 80 yards to put 6 points on the board for his Virginia High School.

Sepp Shirtly was born with cerebral palsy and his ailment has prevented him from lacing up his cleats on Friday nights. That was until last Friday when the head ball coach put him in the game.

Sepp was handed the ball and he went 80 yards for the score.

“We learned more from him than what anyone thought we gave him,” Coach Brown told Richmond.com. “The definition of physical and mental toughness is Sepp marching 80 yards. It’s the toughest 80-yard run I’ve ever witnessed. I’ll tell you that.”
