Yorktown Team Manager Goes From Sideline To Spotlight

YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- It was a Senior Night like none other at Yorktown High School on Friday, Oct. 18.

That's because the Huskers' varsity football team gave team manager Josiah O'Brien a big surprise.

O'Brien, who has Down syndrome, got the carry on Yorktown's last snap from scrimmage and scored a touchdown against Poughkeepsie in Yorktown's 48-27 win.

You can see O'Brien's run in this report by WCBS 2's Dick Brennan that aired on Tuesday, Oct. 22.
