Special Needs Basketball Player Has His Night

posted by @delanabennett -

Marcus wanted nothing other than to be part of a team, go to practice and be treated like every other player. 

Marcus Jackson, a senior basketball player at Olympian High, got into his first ever varsity basketball game.  Marcus is special needs.

Props to the Mater Dei basketball team and Coach Kenny Caesar for allowing Marcus to have his moment. And huge shout out to Coach Marty Ellis. 

Marcus ended the game with 7 points.  2 lay-ups and 1 three pointer.  

Once again thank you Mater Dei for making a 2 minute opportunity a life time memory.
