Lily Lake student becomes pigskin pals with Ponies football captain

A chance meeting on the football field formed an instant friendship between a Ponies Football captain and a Lily Lake fourth grader with special needs.

Jayden Leach-Wirwahn was having his senior pictures taken at Pony Stadium earlier this month when he noticed a boy and his mom playing catch on the field. He walked over to talk with them. He found out that Henry Pahl loves football. Really LOVES football.

Jayden invited Henry to watch the Ponies practice the next day. When practice was over, Jayden and several of his teammates stayed on the field for over an hour to catch, run routes and play football with Henry. They've been getting together ever since. Read the story in the Pioneer Press.
