Video: High school senior hits four three-pointers in a row

Published Add your comment

Senior night is a special game for any high school athlete. It's one of the last times you get to perform with your teammates in front of friends and family before graduation.

For one high school basketball player from Pennsylvania however, Saturday afternoon was even more special.

Kevin Grow has Down Syndrome, but despite his disability he has faithfully served his high school basketball team as a team manager for four years.

During Saturday's game the coach decided to let Grow in as a player for the first time ever. What happened next is truly extraordinary.

As you can see in the video above, Grow scored a layup early in the game and four three-pointers in the final two minutes of play for a game-high 14 points.

The coach later said: "It felt like a movie. It's tough to describe. It really is. It's one of those things that doesn't happen often. … He's a gift from God – he really is."

This game is almost eight years to the day of Autistic student, Jason McElwain's 20 points in four minutes.

Although Grow's effort may not have been quite as spectacular, it will be remembered just as fondly by those who were there to see it.
