Wentworth, NC -- How old must you be before you start caring about others, that's a question one teen thinks is a no-brainer.

This month's 2 Those Who Care recipient is a 10th grader at McMichael High School and he has the compassion of a caring adult.

Daniel Burton started coaching the Special Olympic athletes of Rockingham County three years ago.  He started coaching basketball and liked it so much he helped the golf team a year later.  He has been doing both ever since.

Allen Bowman, one of the players, said this of Daniel, "He's one of the best coaches I've ever played for.  He's determined, he practices with us, he loves us and everything."

And Daniel is just as happy to be with his team, "I can see me being a coach one day for a Special Olympics team for a long time, it's really fun.  I just like being with them, the kids."
