One of my readers alerted me to a heartwarming story of patriotism from Hurst, Texas.

It’s the story of Vita Tonga, a member of the Blue Raiders football team from L.D. Bell High School.

A few weeks ago, Vita went down during a game. He tore the ACL on his right knee. Doctors were able to repair the damage last Friday.

But instead of resting at home, Vita was determined to be at last Saturday’s game.

Sure enough, the North Texas teenager rolled out to the sidelines in a wheelchair to cheer on his teammates.
