LITTLE CHUTE, Wis. (KMSP) -

"I got accepted! Yes! Dad, you rock! I love you!"

Those were the words of Little Chute. Wis. high school senior Noah VanVooren, after learning he was accepted to Edgewood College in Madison, Wis.

We first fell in love with VanVooren last fall, when the he suited up for the football team and scored a touchdown. (Video: http://youtu.be/WQrzK0zeUoM)

He's now set for 4 more years or accomplishments and memories in Edgewood's Cutting Edge Program – "an individualized approach to education and inclusion in college for students with intellectual developmental disabilities."

VanVooren's mother, Kara, told FOX 11 Green Bay she's excited for her son's new opportunities

In his excitement, VanVooren ripped off his Wisconsin Badgers sweatshirt and introduced himself as a member of the Edgewood Eagles.
