On Saturday, nine-year-old Nathan Norman opened the 2016 Liberty Flames Football Spring Game by scoring a touchdown on the first play of the day.

Nathan, who has spent the last seven years of his life battling cancer, joined the Flames after signing with the program in February.

Nathan was matched up with Liberty's football program through Team IMPACT, a national organization, based in Boston, whose mission is to improve the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses through the power of team.

Team IMPACT children are drafted on to college athletic teams, local to where they live and, in effect, become official members of the team. Established in 2011, Team IMPACT has already matched over 850 children with collegiate teams at over 300 institutions in 45 states, improving the quality of life of hundreds of courageous children and touching the lives of over 25,000 student athletes.
