What A Story!

Check out this inspiring story about an autistic boy who's dreams were made true when he was brought in to play during the last game of the year for his high school's basketball team.

I won't give the whole story away, but I will say that this is the kind of story that movies are made of. Watch the video: you'll laugh and you'll cry.

hey Kristen, I can remember playing my first and only highschool game vs IFSS. It was my only game i got to play as i too was a manager of our team at THVS. I did get some points in that game as well.

But the inspiring thing about this is the autistic boy doing this, and causing him to unserstand that yes he can succeed in life and overcome this " berlin wall" as quoted by his mom in the article.

This can be seen as being a role model , even tho he is sick, he still has the determination to practice and get better, play with the team, and encourage those with the same condition to be involved in sports or things they like no matter what the situation is.
