The Hillcrest senior, nine days removed from his final treatment for leukemia, found the end zone for the first time in three years on a tipped pass from quarterback Matt Rush late in the third quarter of the Hornets’ 49-21 victory over West Plains on Friday night.
"It’s been a long time coming," Green-Beckham said. "Matt got me hyped up for it and told me it was coming to me. I wasn’t expecting the celebration but it meant a lot.
"We love each other."
After Green-Beckham’s touchdown grab – which gave the Hornets a commanding 42-14 lead – the entire Hillcrest sideline stormed the end zone to celebrate with their teammate. The 15-yard penalty for excessive celebration seemed worth it, and West Plains’ coach Steve Ary took it in stride.
"I don’t have a problem with any of it," Ary said. "My job is to coach and the players’ job is to play. He’s had a long fight and he’s battled and that’s alright.
"I’m happy for Darnell."
