Boy with Down Syndrome becomes basketball star

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WKRC) -- Philadelphia basketball star, Kevin Grow is joining the Philadelphia 76ers on a ceremonial two-day contract.

Grow, a high-school senior at Bensalem High School, has Down syndrome and has been the varsity basketball team manager for 4 years. That is until the last two games of the season where the coach and his team told him to suit up!

Grow scored 14 points for the team over their last two games, including three 3-pointers and a buzzer-beater.

As the newest member of the Sixers, Grow will suite up along side the pros and participate in pre-game activities prior to the team's home game tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He, and his Bensalem teammates, will be honored prior to the 7 p.m. tip-off.

Watch the video above for his inspirational story.
