OKLAHOMA – On a recent Oklahoma fall evening, a group of young men made memories that will last a lifetime.

“This will be the highlight of their year,” said Southridge Junior High Principal Melanie Smith. “To actually get to go out on the field and score a touchdown, I think they’ll remember this forever.”

On this one night, loyal sideline spectators will become football players.

The night of dreams was organized by their teacher, Miss Beth Kalbfleisch.

“She is one of the most amazing teachers that I’ve ever come in contact with,” said Elaine Myers. “The lengths that she goes through to make sure our kids are included, like the football game tonight, is just unparalleled.”

Kalbfleisch has arranged for Myers’ son, Dillan, and others in the special class for children with disabilities to know the thrill of crossing the goal line.
