Coach Sandoz couldn’t have said it any better. Team Louisiana’s Unified Flag Football team has been putting on quite a show at the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games. The team has been showing off their dance moves during half time. Yesterday, the team was losing going into the half, but once they got done dancing, they came back and won the game!
