PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- There were tons of touchdowns scored during Sunday’s Philadelphia Soul game, but arguably the two most special ones came at the half.

Two children, diagnosed with autism, suited up alongside the Soul’s majority owner and former Philadelphia Eagle Ron Jaworski. And in front of thousands of screaming fans they ran from end zone to end zone to score a touchdown inside the Wells Fargo Center.

"I'm real thankful for this,” said Ryan Baglin. “I really am."

So is his dad, Paul.

"What an amazing opportunity this is and [I> hope it brings more attention to autism."

This was made possible thanks to Audible for Autism.

"It's an organization that provides children with autism with a memorable day they will never forget," said one of the founders, Muzz Skillings. "It actually helps them as a person, it helps them feel connected, helps them feel loved and helps them feel like they're part of something."

Members of the Philadelphia Police Department joined in on the huddle before the big touchdown runs.
