With all the horrible news in the headlines these days, it's so awesome to see something so uplifting and heartwarming.

A high school in Santa Rosa came together to make a dream come true for a classmate on the football team with special needs.

Joe Geary, number 25, has been waiting for a night like this for a long time. In fact, he has been waiting for this all season. Geary does not typically play on the field, instead, he makes sure everyone on the team gets water as the team’s “hydration specialist”. But for the first time, Joe will be given the chance to play football for Montgomery High School in Santa Rosa.

Under the lights, right before the football game was going to begin, both teams made a play especially for Geary. Instead of giving his teammates water, he was able to run the ball down all the way to the end zone. Everyone was able to celebrate Joe Geary in a moment that he will never forget. Kudos to Santa Rosa High School!
