Needs a Better Description, Needs a Better Title, Needs More Examples, Do We Have This?

Of course Underdogs Always Win, and how are they rewarded? By every member of the team (or Nakama, if this is seen in a non-sport context, which is rarer) lifting them onto their shoulders. The lifted person might be an Accidental Athlete, a successful result of Put Me In, Coach!, or similar. I can't think of any specific examples at the moment, but I'd venture to say this has been in every sports movie ever made.
