Young boy with autism shares a touching moment with Colts players TY Hilton and Dwayne Allen
Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton and tight end Dwayne Allen shared a moment with a young fan – one that he'll never forget. And neither will they.
Before Saturday night's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Hilton and Allen were greeting fans on the sideline when Hilton received a hug from seven-year-old Ryder Dodson.
At the time, Hilton was unaware the young fan was autistic. They exchanged "I love yous" before Dodson ran to his mother with excitement:
Laura Dodson watched the entire scene unfold, and then thanked the men in a phone interview afterwards.
"I don't think our family will ever forget," said Laura.
