A star football player who was recently crowned homecoming king at a school in Louisiana decided to share the crown with a fellow student who has cerebral palsy.

Tate Billiot is a sophomore and he is bound to a wheelchair. Terrance Gray is the star football player. Gray found out that he was homecoming king at the school's homecoming dance. He decided to share the crown with Billiot on the spur of the moment.

Gray says he just wanted to make Billiot happy. Gray's team mates lifted Billiot's wheelchair onto the stage and Gray passed him the crown and sash.

Many students in the crowd became emotional during the moment.
