Gesture of sportsmanship highlights SC prep playoff game

Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.,None — One South Carolina high school football team exhibited one of the best displays of sportsmanship recently that you will ever see.

The Myrtle Beach Seahawks were leading Hilton Head 64-10 late in the fourth quarter with just a few seconds on the clock. On Hilton Head's roster is a young man with Down's Syndrome by the name of Chip Mullen.

With the game well in hand, Myrtle Beach Head Coach Mickey Wilson gave a signal to the Hilton Head sideline that it was time to allow Mullen the chance to score.

On the final play of the game, Mullen, a senior, scored on a 75-yard touchdown run on the final play of his high school career.

Myrtle Beach joined the Hilton Head players in the end zone to celebrate Mullen's score.

Myrtle Beach is a nationally ranked team, but the team's defining moment might be a play that will be remembered by players and fans forever.
