“When you’re playing the game, you’re playing to win and the other team is the enemy, but afterwards you still have respect for the other opponent,” Gage said.
The Sherman football coach’s wife captured the heartwarming moment and they were eventually shared the photos with Ty’s aunt, who posted them on Facebook where they quickly went viral.
“It’s pretty special that kind of everybody gets to see really what he is, he’s that type of kid all the time, it’s just not in front of the cameras or anything like that, he’s like that every day,” Gage’s coach, J.D. Martinez said.
“Football brings people together in so many different ways, and that was just one example of it that night,” Gage said.

Share this to send a prayer to Ty’s mom and these two young men. We need more people like Gage in this world.
