Harlem Globetrotters Add Teen with Down Syndrome to Roster

Eighteen-year-old Kevin Grow from Bensalem, Pennsylvania, became an Internet phenomenon when video of him scoring four three-pointers in a high school basketball game went viral. The sports-loving teen, who was born with Down Syndrome, has now taken his moment in the sun even further. He was recruited to play with the Harlem Globetrotters at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

See what happened in the ABC News video below. And keep in mind the words of Kevin’s mom: “Kids with special needs have a lot of abilities that you don’t even know. Don’t undersell them. Challenge them. Make sure they can reach their full potential.”

    As a special needs father myself, yes, that’s the key. Find the talent, instead of concentrating on the disability.
