the whole story is pretty cool

Thamail Morgan took the kickoff and headed up the field.

He was at the 20 ... 30 ... 40

He had been avoiding, dodging or just simply running through tacklers on the way. Football always had come easily for Morgan. This game was no different. By the time he hit midfield, only open space was ahead of him. The two-time Arkansas all-state selection was headed for a touchdown.

40 ... 30 ... 20

He glanced at the clock and saw the final seconds ticking away. He realized his team, Cave City, was on the way to a victory over Yellville-Summit, comfortably ahead, 34-16. He also realized two other things: This wasn't an ordinary game. And he wasn't the same Thamail Morgan.

When he reached the 2, he stopped. He took a few steps back and took a knee at the 5-yard line.

That was an awesome story.. Great gesture.. Good luck to that young man!! Whatever his off-field violation was, he seems to have owned up to it and taken responsibility for it.

Great read.Just found this story. Thanks for posting and then the bump. I enjoy this type of thing. Hopefully, this young man will have a good ending to his sports life but more importantly to being a human. Glad he got a second chance, even more pleased with his thoughtful gesture. Well done.

There goes a player that Belichick won't ever draft.

Good for him, he's a better human being for it.
