See What This High School Football Team Did for Autistic Boy

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a high school football team helps make an autistic student's dream come true. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

A  junior varsity team in St. Louis recently made Craig Lancaster an honorary member of the squad.

Teammate Ernie Diaz said "when we gave him his jersey, it was the biggest smile I've ever seen in my life."

A fellow player even gave Lancaster his number – 42.

The team's athletic director, Scott Hemker, said this is a big moment for their team, but a bigger moment for sportsmanship in general.

"When they do things to make you proud and feel good about the big picture of why we do athletics ... this is outstanding stuff."
