The 2014-15 college football season hasn't started yet, but the Western Michigan Broncos have already gotten the scoring underway—in a special way.

John Mulhearn, who is a wheelchair user, is the son of former Broncos linebacker Sean Mulhearn. He is one of Western Michigan's biggest fans, so the team wanted to give him a chance to make a play.

With his dad helping him all the way, John was able to score a touchdown during a recent Broncos practice. The touchdown set off a big celebration in the end zone.

As the video title indicates, this touchdown is worth more than points to the Mulhearn family.
