JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two football teams came together tonight to bring joy to a boy with an aggressive form of cancer.

McLauren High School and Richland High School let 8-year-old Josh Saxton score the first touchdown of the game Friday night.

Saxton was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer called osteosarcoma in January.

It has always been his dream to be a football player. This experience brightened his day. He has a fighting spirit.

Saxton goes back to inpatient treatment next week.
