A 50-yard run for a touchdown was a golden moment 17-year-old Patrick Fuglei won’t ever forget. Neither will his teammates and opposing players.

It was the last junior varsity football game of the season for Patrick, a junior at Missoula Big Sky High School, as the team went against the Glacier High Wolfpack last Friday in Missoula.

            Class act Glacier! What an incredibly selfless thing to do. I coach rec league basketball, and had the opportunity, thanks to the other team's coach and the refs, to allow an autistic player on my team get mutiple free throw attempts on some "phantom fouls" so he could finally score a point. He physically couldn't get the ball to the rim from 10 feet, and the refs did a masterful job of subtly lining him up from about 6 feet away, and he actually made one! He and his parents we SO thrilled, and it warms my heart to see high school kids and coaches do the same for another child. Again, CLASS ACT to all involved!

            A Flathead fan sends its thanks to Glacier JV for this kind act. You made a difference to more than just Patrick. This is a lesson for others, too.

            School is about learning and growing. Everyone involved will remember what happened that day, for the rest of their lives and be better for it, forever. Because of this event, respect and understanding for all special needs students, just moved up a notch.

            Both teams won that game.
