Homecoming King Turns Crown Over To Friend And Runner-Up With Cerebral Palsy

A high school football quarterback has gone viral due to his incredibly kind heart.

Max Akin’s good looks and command on the football field made him unanimously voted as  homecoming king.

He was crowned at Fossil Ridge High School in Eller during the halftime game against their rivals Saginaw. 

But instead of accepting the honor, Max decided to bestow it unto someone else.

Upon receiving his crown, Max kneeled down and gave it to fellow nominee K.L. Norwood, who has cerebral palsy.  

‘I didn’t know when I would have the right time to do it,’ Akin told WFAA

‘But I saw K.L., came over and gave him a hug, and I knew that he wanted that crown more than anything.’

‘My favorite quarterback right here,’ said K.L. Norwood, who is the Keller Fossil Ridge football team manager.

‘I think it should’ve gone to the person who positively uplifts the school and everybody around him,’ Akin said, ‘and that person is K.L., for sure.’

Video of the touching moment quickly went viral after being posted to Twitter.

‘I thought it was the best hearing them chant K.L.’s name right after halftime, and I know he liked that, too,’ Akin told the station.

‘Everybody was going wild for him. Everybody loves K.L. at this school.’  K.L. described his friend’s gesture as ‘absolutely terrific’. 

The night was made even more perfect after the high school won the football game.
