Trent Glaze always gives 110 percent.

The Ohio high school student, who has muscular dystrophy and uses a wheelchair, always dreamed of playing football. But physical limitations made it impossible, ABC reported.

That didn’t stop him from joining the Fairfield Union High School football team, according to his interview with ABC.

After the clock ran out on Friday’s game against Teay’s Valley High, Glaze had one of his biggest wishes come true, according to the Lancaster Eagle Gazette. Both teams took the field for one last play, and the senior wheeled himself into the end zone for a touchdown.

“I still get butterflies thinking about it,” he told local station 10TV.

Glaze was also named a team captain this year, and even took the school’s homecoming king crown, according to the local station. But nothing seems to top this experience.

“It was his opportunity to shine,” Fairfield Union coach Tom McCurdy told 10TV. “He’s my right-hand man. He’s always telling me what we need to do [and] what needs to improve.”

According to the Gazette, McCurdy says Glaze one day hopes to become a coach himself, and he could see it happening. “His goal is he wants to coach. He listens hard to what we try to teach, and he gets after the guys,” the coach said.
