16-year-old Shae Stelly, battling muscular dystrophy from a wheelchair, scored a TD for Cecilia High School (LA) Thursday night with the help of his coach Terry Martin and Lewis Cook, coach of Notre Dame.

"I went to the scrimmage that night and (Martin) told me to 'come on.' So then I went," Stelly told KATC.com. "Going on the field I was like oh my god, now it's real. It was like it was in my dreams, you know? It really felt amazing."

"To say it's probably been one of the best things I've ever done as a head coach is a huge understatement," Martin said. "Without even saying a word, he inspires me more than anybody. I may put him on a non-faculty role. Just keep him around. He's really someone great to have around."
