Football fan with autism is a die-hard fan of Episcopal HS football star

High school football is a way for youngsters to connect and to compete. But not everyone has the same ability.

Over at Episcopal High School junior Walker Little has made a big impression on one of his fans.

Walker Little is hard to miss. The 6' 7 top recruit is a giant on the football field.

What's also hard to miss is the giant #75 in the Knights endzone. A show of support for Walker from Tre Taylor.

A former neighbor of Little's, Tre has autism. He's also a cancer survivor.

And through his friendship with Walker, Tre's become a huge football fan.

Going to the Knights games has opened up a new world to Tre. He's started a Twitter page, @treshero75, to show even more support of Walker.

On Wednesday, Tre along with other youngsters with special needs will take the field at Episcopal for the Knights annual Challenger Game.
