High School Student with Down Syndrome Scores 14 Points on Senior Night

Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIFebruary 9, 2014

Bensalem (Pa.) High School senior Kevin Grow has Down syndrome, but he's been one of the most committed members of the school's basketball team, attending the Owls' games and practices over the past four years.

Head coach Jon Mullin decided to reward Grow by giving him the opportunity of his life: playing on senior night.

Grow came right out of the gate ready to score, and he didn't stop after one basket. The 18-year-old finished with 14 points and four three-pointers.

Moments like this remind everyone that sports can be a truly beautiful thing.
