CBS News Correspondent Seth Doane reports on a high school student with cerebral palsy who fulfilled his dream of playing football in a report that will be broadcast tomorrow, Nov. 17 on CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY (check local listings) on the CBS Television Network. William Fahey, 17, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at a young age and spends most of his time in a wheelchair. A sports fanatic, Fahey attends the Cotting School in Lexington, Mass., a school for students with developmental disabilities that doesn’t have a football team. For the past six years, he has been attending practices and almost all of the football games of the nearby Wellesley Raiders, cheering from the sidelines. At the Raider’s final home game of the season, coaches allowed Fahey a chance to play on the field last Saturday. What happened next was a dream come true. Anthony Mason and Rebecca Jarvis are the co-hosts of CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY. Michael Rosen is the Executive Producer of CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY.
