San Clemente has already pulled off its play of the year.

West, a senior, is autistic and has been part of the football team since he was a freshman.

"Having this opportunity of inclusion has made the biggest difference in Jack's success at SCHS," his mother, Cathy, said in an email. "There is so much attention on bullying and it is heart warming to see an entire team of young men be so accepting and tolerant of someone who can be perceived as different."
