West Holmes Knights make Mghee’s touchdown dream come true
Sept. 29, was a dream come true for Wooster High School student Joey Mcghee, as he scored a touchdown during the football game at West Holmes.
Players and fans alike were excited to see Joey finally accomplish his goal. Garrett Knapic (10), linebacker for the Wooster Generals, was also enthusiastic.
“ We were excited and proud because it had been Joey’s goal to score a touchdown since the beginning of the summer,” Knapic said.
Similarly, Joey’s parents were also emotional. His parents were in the bleachers, eager to watch the game and were surprised when they saw their son running down the field.
“We were surprised it happened at an away game. We both are very grateful to the coaching staff and all the players on the Wooster football team that include him,” Christina McGhee said.
Coach Doug Haas never planned on Joey scoring.
“We never planned it out to West Holmes we handed the ball off to Joey and didn’t want him to get hurt, and the refs relayed it to the kids”, Haas said. The West Holmes coaches, however, relayed for Joey to score.
“Coach Gardener, the coach at West Holmes, relayed to the refs that we want him to score, let him score.” Haas added.
West Holmes showed unbelievable sportsmanship in the eyes of Haas.
