Coach Peter Morales from Coronado High School Thunderbirds in El Paso, Texas has a favorite guy in the team and he does not have any pangs in pointing him out. Team manager Mitchell Marcus has a developmental disability, but his love for basketball is not affected in any way whatsoever. All of the guys in the team think he is an amazing person and they love him for it.
On the last game of the regular season, Morales decided to play, Mitchell. No one had any idea about this decision except the coach himself. When he told him to take his spot, everyone in the audience started chanting his name. He got overwhelming support, but sadly he could not score. That’s when something amazing happened. Despite Coronado being in the lead, an opposing player from Franklin High School, Jonathan Montanious, decided to give Mitchell a chance. What followed next is going to lift your heart!
