SAPULPA PUBLIC SCHOOLS - A Sapulpa Chieftains athlete has been recognized for his achievements, from a distance far, far away.

Soccer player Tanner Johnson has been invited to participate in the United World Games in Austria this summer.

The junior midfielder received a text in November and, thinking it was a prank, he ignored it. But after he and his parents did some research, they realized it was a legitimate offer. A rare one at that.

Tanner met up with KTUL Channel 8 to tell them his story. You can watch the video here.

It's an expensive trip as you can imagine. His family has started a GoFundMe to help pay for the expenses.

Congratulations, Tanner!
