Soccer team lets opposing player with Down syndrome score goal

The boys from the St. John Vianney Catholic School 5/6th Grand Boys’ Soccer team received a some heartwarming accolades from the mother of one of the boys on their competitions’ team after showing an great act of sportsmanship at a game recently. The woman who wrote the letter, Karen DeVries, is the mother of a young boy named Charlie who attends Grand Rapids Christian Middle School and has Down Syndrome. Her son took part in a game against St. John Vianney, and the outpouring of support from the St. John Vianney team for her son prompted DeVries to write the letter. See what she had to say after the jump!
