Jax did it! And the whole world got to see it.
Earlier this week, Jackson “Jax” Wyss, who has cerebral palsy, scored his first-ever touchdown in the Bay Shore Youth Football league with the help of some teammates.
The video of the 11-year-old in a wheelchair scoring was posted on Facebook, reaching over 230,000 views (and counting). His score he even wound up on the national news.
See the video here:
“Overwhelmed, completely overwhelmed,” his mother Tonya told CBS News following the outpouring of support for her son.
Before going famous, Jax has been a longtime captain for the youth league.
In 2016, GreaterBayShore met with the captain, where he showed how he helped uplift the team.
