Boy with Down Syndrome becomes Basketball Star

Kevin Grow experiences a genetic condition known as Down syndrome. Despite his condition, Kevin, the team manager of his high school basketball team, played during Senior Night of his final high school basketball season and scored four three-pointers in the final two minutes of the game. A video of this event was uploaded to YouTube, and has went viral with almost 1.2 million views.

Following Kevin’s success, he was given an honorary two day contract with the Philadelphia 76ers. During one of the 76ers’ games, Kevin was recognized, alongside his Bensalem High School basketball team, for his accomplishment. Kevin was also recruited by his favorite team, the Harlem Globetrotters, as their 3-point specialist and given the name KG3. Kevin Grow joins Wilt Chamberlain as the only player ever to have played for both the Harlem Globetrotters and the Philadelphia 76ers. Congratulations Kevin!
