Ben Is Getting National Media Attention !!

Grandson Ben

Believing for Ben

Two days ago I wrote about the attention being given to a Facebook video of 5-year-old Ben running a touchdown last May.  (That post can be seen here.)  The video was picked up by two national news organizations, and Ben’s story is now on webpages of radio and television stations across the country as well as on the CBS and ABC news websites !

The video that went viral was uploaded to Facebook last Saturday by the high school sports website MaxPreps.  It showed Ben running for a touchdown during the Murray County (GA) High School Green and White Game.  Because of Ben’s condition and the fact that he will never be able to play football, the Murray County team had given our little guy the opportunity of his life, to play with their team on the high school football field. (You can read about that game and see the local television news report here.)

    Cool beans. Ben might forget a lot of stuff, but I’ll bet he’ll never forget this. Peace, John

    1. He’ll never forget the touchdown run for sure, but I don’t think he really understands all of the attention. Maybe someday he can read my blog posts. 🙂 Cheers, Deb
