High schooler with Down syndrome scores four 3s to close out game
Most inspiring video you'll see all weekend. Maybe all month.
Meet Bensalem High (Pa.) senior Kevin Grow. He's been part of the basketball team for four years, as a team manager. Grow has Down syndrome. In the team's Saturday game against Neshaminy High a pretty terrific turn of events unfolded in the final minutes.
Bensalem had Grow check into its final home game with two minutes remaining.
Grow grew the team lead.
He had 14 points and sank four 3-pointers. Bensalem won 64-40. Most uplifting story of the weekend here. You can see below how Grow earned his first two points, by an allowed layup at the start of the game. So he bookended the biggest win of the season and for that community. Terrific.
“It’s tough to describe. It really is,” [coach John] Mullin said. “It’s one of those things that doesn’t happen often.” Grow worked on his three-point shot during Bensalem’s practices this season. And the Owls do not end practice until Grow hits a free throw. “He's a gift from God — he really is,” Mullin said.
