INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A young man was made the Colts' honorary MVP for the game Sunday, even before kickoff.
10-year-old Michael Moment is autistic and receives assistance and education from Damar Services.
The Colts and Damar teamed up to give Moment, his parents and sister a limo ride to the game, tickets, a commemorative football and an appearance inside the stadium.
Both Dwayne and Sylvia, Michael's parents, are thankful for the day and the opportunity.
"Grateful, appreciative, humbled because people in these kind of situations are, they don’t understand that it's tough," Dwayne Moment said.
"OK, you're not on an island by yourself, and there are companies that are here to help you. You just need to let yourself be helped," Sylvia Moment said.
Although Michael and his dad are huge football fans and never miss a Colts game on TV, Sunday was Michael's first game.
