Meet 12-yr-old Owen Dias. He's an 8th grader at Pierre Part Elementary School in Assumption Parish. Owen was born with spina bifida, meaning his spinal cord did not develop properly, putting him in a wheelchair.

Monday night, Owen got to play with his teammates rolling him out on the field giving him a memory of a lifetime as he threw the ball to his wide receiver. Their opponent last night, Labadieville Middle, was 100% on board! The Pierre Part Middle school football team, the Bulldogs, call him "Big O" and he's been the manager of the team for the past 4 years.
