5th Grade Football Team Stands Up For Special Needs Kid

Don't mess with Danny. Because you'll have to deal with his friends first. That's today's edition of the good stuff.

Six-year-old Danny Keefe had an illness as a baby that's left him a little different from the other kids.  But now, he's thriving– he's even the water boy for his school's fifth grade football team.  He takes his job so seriously that he insists on wearing a suit, tie and fedora every day, like a miniature Tom Landry.

Turns out some other kids started making fun him for that. Well, his team wasn't going to let that stand!

The team declared it "Danny Appreciation Day," and they all came to school wearing Danny's trademark suit and tie.  Some 45 kids, standing up for one of their own.
