WATCH: Blind high school senior scores first touchdown

- It was an amazing moment for a local high school senior who has been blind since he was 10 years old.  He scored his first touchdown during the Pottstown High School Homecoming Game vs Pottsgrove High School.

According to PA Prep, Pottstown High School senior Marvin Pearson started to lose his vision in second grade and became completely blind by the age of 10.

The Trojans lost to Pottsgrove  48-8 but it's a night Marvin will never forget.

“It’s an exhilarating feeling being able to run, that’s what I love to do,” Pearson told PA Prep "As disappointing as this loss was, I was happy to get a chance to prove that I do have skills despite the fact that I can’t see."
