A harassed special-needs student, Chy Johnson, 16, got some special help from her schools’s undefeated football team.
They’re an undefeated team used to throwing touchdowns, and now they’re making high school better for a girl used to bullies throwing trash at her.
A group of kindhearted seniors on Arizona’s Queen Creek High School football team have lent Chy Johnson some tactical defense, helping a girl whose brain disorder once made her an easy target for bullies.
The new friendship started when Elizabeth Johnson, whose daughter said girls threw trash on her at school, contacted starting quarterback Carson Jones.

“He took it a step further and went and gathered Chy up at lunch and she’s been eating lunch with them ever since,” Johnson said.
Jones, fellow teammate Tucker Workman and many other Queen Creek Bulldogs have also started looking after Chy throughout the day, a move that has stopped people from bothering her.
“I guess they’ve seen her with us or something,” Jones said.

Teammate Workman said it feels good to know that the players are helping someone who needs a little help.

This is a big change for Chy, who suffers from a brain disorder called microcephaly
. It’s a condition which makes her head smaller than normal and usually renders life expectancy down to only 25 or 30 years.
But for now, the 16-year-old sophomore calls the players “her team.”
The Queen Creek High Schoo Bulldogs have been nominated for the Americas Team award for their big-hearted actions.
“They save me because I won’t get hurt again,” she said. “They’re not mean to me because all my boys love me,” she said, just recently named a Queen Creek High School “Fan of the Week.”
