Western Michigan scored perhaps its most inspirational touchdown weeks before the season actually began.

John Mulhearn, whose father is WMU MAC Champion linebacker Sean Mulhearn, wove through the defense to score a touchdown last week at practice as WMU players blocked for him, ran with him and cheered him on.

After taking the handoff, the younger Mulhearn — who is in a wheelchair — carried the ball into the endzone where the entire team celebrated wildly.
