Novi Senior With Down Syndrome Scores Touchdown for Sick Mother – The Good News [VIDEO]
"I've always been proud of him being the water boy, or as people call him the hydration manager, but this was incredible, he's Rudy tonight, he's Rudy."
Robby Heil is a senior at Novi High School, and also has Down Syndrome. He's been the football team's "hydration manager" for the last four years. Last week, as the Wildcats' game against South Lyon East was wrapping up, play was suspended...and Robby was allowed to suit up and enter the game.
His mom Debbie, who has bone cancer, was watching from the sidelines...as Robbie scored a touchdown. She said that he got to "live his dream" that night.
