Autistic Basketball Player Makes Shot of His Life
Austistic basketball player makes the shot of his life
One shot doesn’t make a basketball career, but it can make for a very special memory. Isiah Upshaw, who attends Brooklyn High School in Ohio, suited up for the varsity squad recently. Last year, Upshaw was cut in try-outs and ended up as the team’s water boy.
After hours and hours of practice, Upshaw earned a roster spot and had the chance to wear a uniform of his school for the very first time. The game turned into an event and produced a memory that Upshaw and his family will never forget.
In the second half of the game, Upshaw, who has autism, calmly drained a three-point shot and then celebrated as if it won the NBA championship. They were the first points of Upshaw’s career. He’d add to his total by knocking down another three-pointer later in the game.
That’s what you call a memorable moment.
