Football: Heartwarming story of the day out of Wash.

Ike Ditzenberger, a junior at Snohomish (Wash.) High School who has Down Syndrome, achieved a major milestone on Friday in a game against Lake Stevens, running 51 yards for a touchdown with 10 seconds remaining. The “Ike Special” provided the only points in Snohomish’s 35-6 loss. It was the first varsity touchdown in Ditzenberger’s career, a ramble through an opposing defense that mirrors the end to Snohomish practices every day, when Ditzenberger gets the final run of practice and somehow finds the end zone, through a combination of running guile and intentionally passive defenders.

    Bravo Lake Stevens — especially the kids who didn’t just walk away but dove “at his feet” and otherwise made defensive moves down the field to keep him going. What a great way for the visitors to play a part in that awesome ending.

    And bravo Snohomish for allowing Mr. Ditzenberger to be a part of the team. What an awesome group of kids they must have up there.

    I couldn’t agree with you more.I’m sorry while I agree with all the ‘bests’, there is a glaring omission of Addison Montgomery on Private Practice.

    It is essential to understand that not all boots are created equal. The word ‘boot’ is not synonymous with water-proof or snow-friendly. Respect your fashion investment by weather-protecting and cleaning all of your winter footwear regularly.
