He won an ESPY for that performance. His speech at the ESPY's was incredible also.

Never have seen or heard about this before, thanks for posting...very inspiring for sure. Here is a person with some many things against them and he simply does not accept and shows everyone what is possible.
Does anyone know if he went on to play in any other games? If I were the coach, I'd be hard pressed not to play someone who shoots the lights out like that!

With a son that has autism, this gives me hope that my son has a chance at experiencing what it's like to be a normal kid (whatever normal is). That was an awesome story. Thanks for sharing!

I have a six year old son with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). He and we are fortunate he falls on the very high functioning end of the spectrum. Regardless, autism is a particularly difficult condition to work with on a day to day basis and within the educational system.

Those who have ASD are almost always affected differently. My boy was about 2+/- years late in talking and is still a bit behind in language skills in spite of a concentrated speech therapy program, but taught himself to read at age 3. Hyperlexia (Precocious self-taught reader. Reads well above his age/grade level.) is the name of his sub-disorder.

One of the universal truths regarding ASD is that most parents need help to formulate a game plan to help their child and resources to develope an effective plan of action are often difficult to access. For those living near Philadelphia, here is a brand new and highly promising resource: http://www.sju.edu/news/archives/kinney_center_091809.html

For those with loved ones suffering with ASD, stay strong for them.

Thank you for sharing the video!
