Wichita, Kansas (KSNW) —Friday night lights were very bright and shining for a family in Kansas. At Eisenhower High School, instead of one, two sons began to make history.
The Return Court had a very special student athlete on the field on Friday night. His name is Brody May. Two years ago, Brody’s brother Parker was honored to win the crown of his return home. Brody himself was in the limelight today.
“What they can do is a special moment for them. They can spend it in the sun,” said Dr. Karl May, Brody’s father.
When Dr. May’s eldest son won the return king two years ago, he wanted his second son Brody to have the same experience.
“Often they don’t get that spotlight, which is very special for children with disabilities,” he continued.
Brody, like his brother Parker, has Down Syndrome. But according to his friend and teammate Tate Trud, that doesn’t define him.
“He’s so kind and he just understands everything, and I think that’s why everyone loves him so much,” Trud said.
Eisenhower High School students accepted Brody. Too many, he was nominated for the Return King.
“So far, it feels great to make my dream come true,” Brody said.
He said winning the crown was not the most important thing for him. His friends are.
“I love you so much,” Brody continued.
A true class act. “It means a lot as a dad because you did the right thing,” Dr. May added.
Trudeau said it was Brody’s “let’s do” attitude that prompted them to leave it all on the field.
“Game Day, he’s very cool. It’s great just to hear him. He just keeps us all and brings us all together as one family,” Trudo added.
On Friday, Brody’s Eisenhower High School family crowned him the King of Return. What was Brody’s first idea? I am proud and happy with his brother.
“I love your hoodie, I made it. Let’s go!” Brody concludes.
