While most people at Williams Stadium hear the many cheers around them, Liberty quarterback Josh Woodrum has the unique ability to hone in on the cheers of his No. 1 fan, his younger brother Chris.

During today's LFSN Game On feature story, reporter Lyndsay Keith looks at the brotherly bond that continues to bring these two Roanoke, Va., natives together closer, including Chris' down syndrome.

Chris, the youngest son of Alan and Beth Woodrum, has never let what others may view as a hindrance keep him from living the fullest of lives.

Chris and his family travel to as many of Liberty's home and road football games as they can. The Woodrum family normally is seated in the front row of the stands at Williams Stadium for home game, cheering on Liberty's three-year starting quarterback.

Chris is currently attending Cave Spring High School in Roanoke, Va., Josh's high school alma mater. Chris was recently named the Cave Spring "Knight," an annual award given to the senior who best represents the student body, in the classroom, the athletics fields and in the community. 

Josh, an exercise science major that wants to train athletes following his football career, has worked with Chris who now excels in Special Olympics swimming competitions.
