The Greyhounds have more than impressed Owen’s parents.
“This team of young men is the best group I’ve seen in a long time,” Susan said. “They are so invested in making things wonderful for Owen.
“For him to be part of a team is amazing. Someone asked me, ‘He’s only 6, do you think he gets it?’ He gets it.”
Owen’s team membership is for life. It will last long after Vaught and this year’s players have moved on. The Greyhounds have put their heart and soul into getting to know their new friend, and the rewards are beyond original comprehension.
“I think we are getting more out of it than what we can ever give him,” Vaught said.
