        A skinny young boy loved football with all hisheart.Practice after practice,he eagerly gaveeverything he had.But being half the size of the other boys,he got absolutely nowhere.This teenager lived alone with his father,and the two of themhad a very special relationship.
  Even though the son was always on the bench,his father was always standing and cheering.He never missed a game.This young man was still the smallest of the class when he entered high school.But his father continued to encourage him while he also made it very clear that he did not have to play football if he didn’t want to.But the young man loved football and decided to hang in there.
  All through high school he never missed either a practice or a game but remained a bench-warmer all four years.His faithful father was always in the stands,always with words of encouragement for him.
  When the young man went to college,he decided to try out for the football teamas a“walk-on(临时队员).”Everyone was sure he could never make the cut,but he did.The coach admitted that he kept him on the roster(名单)because he always put his heart and soul into every practice,and at the same time,provided the other members with the spirit they badly needed.The news that he had survived the cut thrilled himso much that he rushed to the nearest phone and called his father.This persistent young athlete never missed practice during his four years at college,but he never got to play in a game.
  It was the end of his last football season,and as he trotted(小跑)onto the practice field shortly before the big playoff game,the coach met himwith a telegram.The young man read the telegram and he became deathly silent.
  Swallowing hard,he mumbled to the coach,“My father died this morning.Is it all right if I miss practice today?”The coach put his arm gently around his shoulder and said,“Take the rest of the week off,son.And don’t even plan to come back to the game on Saturday.”
  Saturday arrived,and the game was not going well.In the third quarter,when the team was ten points behind,a silent young man quietly slipped into the empty locker room and put on his football gear.As he ran onto the sidelines,the coach and his players were astounded to see their faithful teammate back so soon.“Coach,please let me play.I’ve just got to play today,”said the young man.The coach pretended not to hear him.There was no way he wanted the worst player in this close playoff game.
  But the young man persisted,and finally feeling sorry for the kid,the coach gave in.“All right,”he said.“You can go in.”Before long,the coach,the players and everyone in the stands could not believe their eyes.This little unknown,who had never played before was doing everything right.The opposing team could not stop him.He ran,he passed,and blocked like a star.
  His team began to triumph.The score was soon tied.In the closing seconds of the game,this kid intercepted(拦截)a pass and ran all the way for the winning touchdown(攻方持球触地得分).The fans broke loose.His teammates hoisted him onto their shoulders.Such cheering you have never heard.
  He looked at the coach,with tears in his eyes,and said,“Well,you knewmy dad died,but did you know that my dad was blind?”The young man swallowed hard and forced a smile,“Dad came to all my games,but today was the first time he could see me play,and I wanted to showhimI could do it!”
