A group of�6th grade football players named an unlikely�person their "Special Captain."
The Vikings Football Team played their last�game of the season on Wednesday, so some of the players decided to honor one of their friends and classmates who has a brain tumor and can't play football himself.
Karsten Fagan is a big football fan, but has never been able to play. In his twelve years of life, he's gone through 49 surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy.
"I don't think he's ever stepped on a football field before," said Roddy Romero, a Vikings football player,�"because he's either at home or at a hospital. So it's hard. All he does is watch and he never does, so we kind of want to bring him some encouragement to go play."
On Wednesday night, Karsten got his chance to step on that field, when the 6th grade Junior Tackle Vikings named him "Special Captain" for the night.
Karsten lead the team out onto the field, and handed out a rose to his mother, just like all the other teammates.
