Kansas high school football player with spina bifida scores touchdown

COLDWATER, Kan. (KWCH) For any Kansas high school football player, making a touchdown can be the highlight of the game.

For one student in western Kansas, Friday night's game brought a whole new meaning to his life.

Zach Jellison is a senior at South Central High School. He has been part of the South Central Timberwolves since freshman year.

The one thing that sets Zach apart from his teammates is the fact that he lives with Spina Bifida.

But Friday night, with a little help from his teammates, Zach made a play that he won't forget.

"When coach told me to put my helmet on, I was like, 'Okay, I'll do it.'" Recalls Zach.

Zach's cousin wheeled him off the sidelines and straight into the end zone.

"I brought him in and he had no clue what was going on. He was excited," says Hunter Huck.

"Any senior that's never scored a touchdown with me, I've always gotten them at least one touchdown because all boys dream of scoring a touchdown some point in their life," says Zach's coach, Billie Dean Nichols.

His thrive and passion for life has allowed him to do anything he sets his mind to. After all, he knows his team has his back.
