This is a short clip from the early 2000s tv show, Friday Night Lights. For some context, this show is about a high school football team in rural Texas. The teenager in the wheelchair is one of the protagonists in this show, Jason Street, and he becomes paralyzed through a sports injury in the middle of a football game in the first episode. This is a clip of his first time returning to his high school and to the football stadium. 

0:15-1:41 is the relevant clip
