Two Alabama high school football teams came together Friday night to help make a dream come true for a senior with Down Syndrome.

Amy Hyde's brother, 18-year-old Jake, is a senior with Down Syndrome at Vestavia Hills High School in Vestavia Hills, Alabama.

In the video posted on Twitter, Jake can be seen running down the field, scoring a 35-yard touchdown against Briarwood Christian School.

Members of both teams ran with Jake and the celebration afterward is simply tremendous. Jake's score also started chants from the crowd.

According to MaxPreps.com, Vestavia Hills and Jake went on to win the game 24-3 over Briarwood Christian.
