Team manager with autism - suits up - scores 20!

Uplifting story right here.

Right when you think America's sports mad culture goes too far, a coach steps up and rewards an autistic student's hard work and dedication as team manager and lets him suit up for a game.

Who would have thought he would shoot the lights out of the gym!

I saw the clip of this on TV this morning. WOW! It brought tears to my eyes to see how this student overcame his "disability", not to mention all the 3 pointers he scored!! It truly was amazing to see how everyone in the gym responded!

That is so cool.:-) As a mom of an autistic son, this is very heartwarming to read. I'm glad to see that his peers treat him so well.
