Menomonie, Wisconsin, high school senior Sam Kolden has been a member of the Indians football team since the 8th grade.
He also has autism. So when Menomonie’s coach asked Superior to let Kolden catch a pass in a game that the Spartans were trailing 46-14, the answer was clear.
“There was no indecision whatsoever,” Superior head coach Bob DeMeyer said. “The guys in the huddle with me just chimed in and said, ‘Let’s do it, Coach.’”
