AUSTIN (KXAN) — It was a special night at Vandegrift for senior Tommy Hartman.

The team leader scored the first touchdown of his high school on senior night with the support of his teammates, coaches and the Hutto football program.

‘T Drive’ was the play that got Hartman, who has autism, into the end zone against Hutto. The two head coaches coordinated the play to start their game on Friday night at Vandegrift. Kudos to all involved.
