Earlier this week, a youth football team from Idaho won a football tournament in California, but it's what they did on the road home that made national attention.

The Boise Black Knights, a 13-and-under team, won the Bay Area Spring Football League Tournament of Champions in San Jose. While on the road home, the team saw an overturned car along Interstate 95 south of Jordan Valley in Oregon.

The team's four-car caravan stopped to help.

Players and coaches helped a male out of the vehicle before the real heroics started. Players from the team helped lift the car, while one member of the team helped pull a woman from the overturned car.

Video of the rescue is incredible.

The team's coach, Rudy Jackson, spoke with ABC’s “Good Morning America,” earlier this week: "Me, right now talking about it, I'm getting emotional. Because I've watched these boys grow. And they came a long way. They're amazing young men."

We could use more stories like this in the world.
