Gridiron Heroes Donates a Van to Injured Athlete Devin Hebert
On April 22, 2011, Devin Hebert and his mother took a Greyhound bus from Houston to San Antonio, Texas. Riding the bus was something they have done several times since Devin was paralyzed during a high school football game in 2007. As a member of Gridiron Heroes, A Spinal Cord Injury Foundation, Devin was bringing his mother to San Antonio to attend the Red Carpet Premiere of the NBC television show Friday Night Lights… an event hosted by Gridiron Heroes.
After the actors and celebrities took their "Red Carpet Walk," a big surprise waited for Devin and his mother in the theater. With all 19 of the Friday Night Lights actors by Devin's side, Gridiron Heroes presented mother and son with a new wheelchair-accessible van.
Watch the emotional video below.
The following day, Devin and his mom didn't take have to ride a bus; they drove home in their new van.
