VIDEO: High school runner carries opponent to finish line
August 30, 2017

Roswell High School‘s Jacob Brunner began to struggle about 100 yards from the finish line during the Wesleyan Invitational at the Wesleyan School in Norcross, GA. Brunner collapsed but Providence Christian Academy's Luke Hudson was not going to let this be the end of his race. Hudson stopped his own race, picked up Brunner and helped him to the finish line. 

“This is the type of person that Luke is,” said Coach Chris Stephens. “It was a moment where I wasn’t coaching Luke. He was coaching me and everyone else about the importance of your fellow man. Luke chose to sacrifice himself and his placing, doing exactly what God called him to do.”

Hudson may not have won the race, but he was declared "Champion of Character" and received a medal for his good sportsmanship.
