GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

The Special Olympics held their Fall State Games at various Greenville County parks.

Athletes took part in events, like flag football, soccer and volleyball.

The event brought together about 1,200 athletes, 250 coaches and hundreds of families, caregivers and volunteers.

It's fun for the athletes and the coaches too.

"It's unbelievable, sometimes it brings chills to me and almost tears to my eyes, says volunteer coach Will George, "Just seeing these athletes compete...a catch to them is like a touchdown. It's just awesome."

Closing ceremonies and a victory celebration were held Saturday night at the T.D. Convention Center in Greenville.
