Before school ended for the year, the Abilene High Eagles held their annual Champions football game for special needs children at Shotwell Stadium.
Preceding the spring football scrimmage, the game has been a tradition for more than 10 years.
Nineteen players joined the Eagles for a fun game of touch football. The high school players advised and cheered their teammates, watching them experience the glory of running for a touchdown as the crowd cheered them on.
