A high school senior in Michigan gets a surprise that he will never forget.

Robby Heil is often seen helping out on the sidelines with water and wearing a number 24 jersey.

On Friday, however, that was not the case. Heil has special needs and when his football team found out that his mother had advanced cancer, they decide to give them both a surprise.

Heil took the field and scored a touchdown that he has dreamed about doing. Both teams cheering as he entered the end zone. 

His teammates view him as part of the team and wanted him to know just how much they care about him.
