The basketball team at Coronado High School in El Paso, Texas was playing their final game of the season.  The team’s manager is a disabled student named Mitchell Marcus.  Coronado’s coach, Peter Morales told Mitchell to suit up for that last game of the season.

The thrill of warming up with the Coronado High School Thunderbirds was thrilling enough for Mitchell, but things got even better as the game went on.

Mitchell was put into the game and his Thunderbirds teammates passed the ball to him every time they had the ball.  Mitchell took a few shots and missed them all.

Then, as time was running out, a player on the opposing team, Jonathon Montonez,  did something quite extraordinary.  Watch this video and grab a tissue.
