Special Olympics athlete delights at Rutgers spring game

The last five minutes of the Rutgers spring game Saturday belonged to Special Olympics New Jersey. The athletes, who play for Team New Jersey Flag Football, put on a show for the Scarlet Knights fans. No one delighted more than Dalton Stilts, though. Stilts caught a short pass over the middle and took it 62 yards for a touchdown. The best part? Stilts’ celebration. Check it out in this post.

That’s great! You know Stilts had the celebration rehearsed and ready to go should he reach paydirt.
