A cheerleader at a Massachusetts high school is proving that disabilities don’t have to stand in the way of aspirations.
Evan Adelman, a student at Middleboro High School outside of Boston, isn’t letting Down Syndrome keep him from being part of his school’s cheerleading squad.
Evan and his teammates performed at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough last weekend, according to CBS Boston. The stadium, home to the NFL’s New England Patriots, is the largest in the state.

‘It’s amazing to see how much he can do with the challenges he goes through,’ said teammate Tiffani Capeau.
Evan’s teammates and coaches have praised his work ethic
‘Evan can do everything that all these girls are doing,’ said coach Alyssa Shelters. ‘I think it gives the girls a little more motivation to see that he tries so hard and he works really hard and he does it all, and they can try really hard and they can do everything they want to do, too.’
