Down's Syndrome student Colton
Webb was crowned homecoming king at Montgomery High School Friday. The student
couldn't celebrate for long though, he is also the manager of the football
team. A homecoming night loss couldn't rob Montgomery High of a special night
this weekend. At halftime of Friday 20-6 loss to Westfield, the Montgomery
student body named Colton Webb, a student living with Down Syndrome, as its
2014 Homecoming King, according to the Montgomery
County Police Reporter.
The crowd roared in applause as a
smile spread across the student's face. Webb's Mom, Shelly Webb, said it was
amazing to see the students so accepting. The newly crowned king's dedication
to football was clear as he left celebrations early to return to his team, on
which he serves as team manager. "He loves the football, the school, all
the kids up here, it is just great," said, Webb's dad, Bubba. "It's a
special thing ... you didn't see this a long time ago ... everyone supports him
really good. It's a big team effort up here; he's really happy right now."
