BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A youth football team from Idaho has rescued two people from an overturned car in Oregon.

The Boise Black Knights were headed home Tuesday, after winning a championship in the Bay Area Spring Football League (BASFL) Tournament of Champions in San Jose, when a car rolled over in front of their vans on a highway south of Jordan Valley, Oregon.

One of the players started recording his teammates' actions (The team lifts the car about the 8:20 mark):

Coach Rudy Jackson tells the Idaho Statesman his team, made up of youths 13 and under, "had to stop and become heroes."

The team pulled a man out who was trapped and pushed on the car to raise it for another player to grab a woman stuck inside.

Jackson says the team acted like nothing had happened.

"It just felt amazing that we could do what we did because I don't want to imagine what would happen if we were not there to help," Regan Magill, a player on the team who took the video, told the Idaho Statesman.
