Boy with muscular dystrophy's dream comes true
BOSTON (WHDH) -- "I like drawing. I like video games. I like singing Justin Beiber."
But more than anything else 9-year old Jason Smith, Jr. likes sports.
Jason has a form of muscular dystrophy -- so he's usually stuck on the sidelines watching, cheering on and coaching his twin brother Jalen.
"Sometimes I just dream about running a touchdown,” said Jason Smith.
"He dreams about it almost every night,” said Smith’s brother, Jalen.
Last week Jason's dream became a reality.
"He grabbed my brother's helmet took it off him and put it on me."
"One of them was like they're putting a helmet on Jason and I was like what?" said mother, Miranda Smith.
The team was down and a win out of reach -- with less than a minute left in the game Jason's dad, who is also the coach, decided to put him in.
He captured the moment on his cell phone as the ball was passed to Jason and a teammate then pushed him all the way to the endzone.
"We were going pretty fast,” remembers Jason Smith, Jr.
"Just to see that smile on his face that was a great feeling for me,” said Jason’s father, Jason Smith, Sr.
After his touchdown, Jason's team as well as the other team gathered around him cheering and giving him high fives.
It was a moment the 9-year-old will never forget.
