Fans of the Little Chute (Wisconsin) Mustangs got a special surprise at the team's matchup with Clintonville High on Oct. 18. Longtime waterboy Noah VanVooren was made honorary team captain, much to his parents' delight.

What they and the fans didn't know, however, was that VanVooren—an 18-year-old senior with Down syndrome—would score a touchdown in the final minute of the Mustangs' 62-0 win.  

Naturally, the crowd went wild.
