There was a true showing of sportsmanship at a suburban high school football game earlier this month.Winfred Cooper, a senior at Elgin High School, has severe autism. The coach put him in during a game with Lake Park High.

In a well choreographed play, the ball was thrown his way. He caught it and ran 67 yards to the end zone for a touchdown with a little help from the Lake Park players.

Since then, Cooper has hardly ever let go of the football.
