Score one for Western Michigan and the Mulhearn family.

Sean Mulhearn, a former WMU linebacker who helped the school win the MAC title in 1988 and won league Defensive Player of the Year in 1990, used to be tasked with keeping people out of the end zone at Waldo Stadium.

But at a recent practice, he didn't mind at all -- watching with a big smile as WMU head coach P.J. Fleck helped his wheelchair-aided son John across the goal line to loud cheers from the Broncos players, who had followed the pair all the way down the field.
