Jocks don't usually carry a good reputation with them in high school. Many outsiders perceive them as arrogant, immature, and unkind. However, one high school quarterback in Arizona is working to change those negative perceptions.From People Magazine:Carson Jones didn't think he was doing anything special last August when he asked his buddies on the Queen Creek High School football team in Queen Creek, Ariz., to help watch over a special-needs sophomore who was getting picked on by other students. The 18-year-old quarterback with a 4.3 GPA had no idea how his good deed would end up changing the life of Chy Johnson, whose neurological disorder limits her cognitive abilities to that of a third-grader. But over the past three months, Johnson, 16, has gone from being a bullied outcast to becoming one of the most celebrated kids at Queen Creek High.Carson stepped up after Chy's mother contacted him through Facebook and asked if he could find out who was bullying her daughter. The very next day, Jones found Chy sitting by herself in the cafeteria and invited her to sit with him and other members of the football team. Chy has been an unofficial part of the group ever since."If it wasn't for Carson, I honestly think we would have pulled her out of school and homeschooled her," says Johnson's mom, who first met Jones years earlier while working as a teacher's aide at his elementary school.Carson and Chy's story is heart-warming holiday story indeed.Via The Big Lead.
