When the Novi High School Wildcats took on the South Lyon East Cougers last Friday night, Senior Water Boy, Hydration Manager / Running Back Robby Heil made the play of the year. In the beginning of the second quarter, Robby entered the game as Running Back, was handed the football, and drove it in for a touchdown while the crowd chanted his name. Meanwhile, Robby’s terminally ill mother, Debbie, dropped to the ground from emotion watching her son live his dream.
Earlier this month, 20-year-old Brendan Jankowski was headed east on I-94 just outside Minneapolis, Minnesota when a rolled-up foam pad fell off a vehicle and onto the road in front of him. Jankowski, who had been riding for less than two weeks, tried to avoid crashing into the big pad, but hit it head-on at ~50mph. Linda Leverty’s dashboard camera happened to be running at the time of the crash and caught the entire accident on video. Jankowski suffered only minor injuries and investigators are still looking for the driver of the SUV.
