Special fan scores memorable touchdown

- It was a memorable night for football players and fans attending a game Thursday in Albany, Louisiana.

A coach was calling the final plays of his career.  But the highlight of the night was actually seeing a young man named Kyle Stewart scoring a touchdown -- in his motorized wheelchair.

The die-hard fan had rarely missed any of the Albany Middle Hornets football games.  The eighth-grader would show up faithfully to cheer the team from the sidelines.

But when the coach called his last game in 35 years, he made two of his most impressive calls.  First, he named Stewart an honorary team captain.  Then, as the team fought for a win in overtime, he sent the avid fan in to make the touchdown that broke the score.

For everyone that night -- the fans, the coach, and the players -- it was an emotional moment that they will likely remember as one of the finest in the team's history.
