2009 Viral Video of Matt Ziesel’s 50 ard Touchdown Against the Spoofhounds

Here’s an amazing story of Benton High School student Matt Ziesel scoring a touchdown after the Spoofhounds let him run for 60+ yards in a freshman game as Benton was down 46-0 at the time. Ziesel has Down’s Syndrome. He initial video has more than a million hits. It drew some controversy because of some people thought it was condescending — although favorable comments far outweighed the negative. Incidentally Maryville won the Class 2 Championship that year.
