Sportsmanship: Grubbs scores touchdown for Harrisburg

HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) - Gavin Grubbs, who was recently featured on CBS' 60 Minutes and was granted his wish to meet NASCAR Driver Joey Logano, scored a touchdown on Thursday night in a junior high football game.

The Harrisburg Hornets lined up near their goal line and Gavin punched the football into the end zone for six points.

The play was an incredible display of sportsmanship not only by Gavin's teammates, but the opposing Brookland Bearcats. Grubbs battles merosin-negative muscular dystrophy and has done so since he was 6-months old.
