Updating a story that brought a big reaction from our viewers -- a teenager with Down Syndrome will take the field with her squad.

The mother of Brittany Davila, 16, says her daughter is being allowed to cheer with her squad. Deer Park ISD is allowing Davila to cheer after initially saying she was a liability.

Davila will cheer at the Deer Park High freshmen football game Thursday, but will have to stand in a safe area during squad stunts.

Buffy Davila told Eyewitness News, "I'm glad we got this cleared up. Everybody is happy now."
