High School Football Star Proves Friendship Is More Important Than Scoring A Touchdown

October 31, 2014

Amazing and touching story/video about friendship, sports and doing the right thing when it isn’t expected. As athletes/coaches we relish in this type of bond between teammates and this is exactly the type of kid who will succeed

Senior football star Bryce Kemp might have made the best move of his high school career by purposely avoiding the end zone.

The athlete at Collins-Maxwell/Baxter High School in Iowa sprinted into the clear but mysteriously slid at the one-yard line on a punt return in the final regular season game last Friday. But his intent soon became clear, Iowa station KCCI reported: He wanted his childhood friend, offensive lineman Clayton Weltha, to have one last shot at scoring his first touchdown.

So with little time remaining in a blowout victory over Centerville, Weltha took his gift from Kemp and ran with it — right into the end zone.

“That touchdown was the greatest feeling in my life,” Weltha told the Ames Tribune. “That was the first touchdown I ever (scored). I’d like to thank Bryce Kemp for taking that awesome knee. ”

The team had another milestone to celebrate as well: Collins-Maxwell/Baxter finished the regular season undefeated for the first time in school history, the Newton Daily News reported. Well done, guys.
