It was amazing, I stopped what I was doing and didn't move till it was over.
The real hero was the coach for suiting him up and having the courage to stick him in the game (Even if they were ahead by nearly 20 points with 4 minutes to go).
After he missed the second shot the coach said he looked back in the second row at Jasons father as if to say "Did I screw up and possibly expose him to ridicule by putting him in the game" The father vigorously shook his head no as if to say "let him be... his pysche wil be fine". Then the kid went on the tear. The point in the piece that gets the tears welling up in your eyes is the post game interview with the kid "I was hot as a Pistol" he says with a mixture of pride and awe. He certainly was!
The H.S. / fans were awesome too.... the support they gave this kid who must have had such a tough time fitting in, well, it certainly shows that the youth today can not only meet, but surpass expectations.
