Colorado teams celebrate as student with cerebral palsy scores TD

Game Day Live: Prairie View's Patrick McKinney

HENDERSON - At the end of the day, the score doesn't matter. Honestly. Losses can be tough, wins can be exhilarating, but each practice, game and moment with your team can provide memories and lessons to last a lifetime.

That was the case during the Cherry Creek versus Prairie View football game Friday night. In the fourth quarter, Prairie View football manager Patrick McKinney entered the game for the Thunderhawks. McKinney has cerebral palsy, and is in a wheelchair. With the help of his teammates and the Cherry Creek Bruins, McKinney scored the final touchdown of the night. After he reached the end zone, both benches joined him to celebrate on the field.
