Mitchell Marcus, a special needs student from a Texas high school, is the team manager for the Coronado Thunderbirds and an avid basketball fan. So, with 90 seconds left in the last game of the season, Coach Peter Morales put Marcus into the game. But Marcus' first shot missed, as did his other attempts to score. With seconds left, the ball went out of bounds and the opposing team got it. Everyone knew that Marcus was not going to get another chance. Then, Jonathon Montanez, a senior at rival Franklin High School and a member of the opposing team, down by 10 points, tossed Marcus the ball.
