jack: hard work, fair play, and teamwork are just a few of the values student athletes learn on a team. stephanie: two siouxland teams put that idea to the test, when they put one of their biggest fans in the game. rachael krause explains. when lawton bronson's football teams hit the field... they come ready to play. thursday night, they're taking on woodbury central in a rivalry game... but tuesday's game against westwood is one the team will never forget, and all because they put kameron obberreuter, the team manager in the game. "to see him so excited and out there being the star on the field for once instead of being out on the sidelines, it's a thing that you can't even begin to put words on how much it means to us and to him," said robin oberreuter, kameron's mom. kameron has special needs, but he's always been a big part of the team, cheering them on from the sidelines. but this time, with a minute and a half left...it was
5:19 pm
kameron's turn to take the field. "the quarterback gave me the ball," kameron said. he kicked... and ran, nearly sixty yards for his very first touchdown. "we didn't care what the score was at that point. what the kids learned, both teams, coaches, parents, it put things back in to perspective. and sometimes us adults need that," said jesse pedersen, lawton bronson football coach. then the team, running behind kameron during the play, came in. "they gave me a group hug," kameron said. "it's something you can't even describe your feelings when it happens," pedersen said. the play lasted just a few seconds... but the memory of kameron's first touchdown will stay with everyoyo there, forever. "it's a memory that he'll have and be able to cherish. and we can look back and talk about this for years," oberreuter said. stephanie/2shot time for another quick break... meteorologist james peterson will be back with meteorologist james peterson
