Ryan Encinas, a 5-year-old cancer survivor, scores a touchdown at Cleveland Browns scrimmage

The Browns had a special guest during their Family Night scrimmage on Saturday night. He ended up scoring their most memorable touchdown of the season.

Ryan Encinas, a 5-year-old from Cuyahoga Falls who recently celebrated two years in remission after battling a cancerous tumor in his left lung, got in the huddle, then took a handoff from quarterback Brandon Weeden. With running back Trent Richardson helping out, Encinas ran through the defense for a touchdown with more than 24,000 fans at FirstEnergy Stadium cheering him on.

The team celebrated with Encinas when he got past the goal line.

The Akron Beacon Journal said a tumor was discovered on Encinas' left lung when he was 2. Aug. 2 was his two-year anniversary of being in remission. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said his 5-year-old son Kaelan suggested the play after seeing 7-year-old Jack Hoffman score a touchdown at Nebraska's spring game, according to the Beacon Journal.

Congratulations and thank you to the Cleveland Browns for providing one of the greatest moments of the NFL season.
