Watch This High School Student With Down Syndrome Hit A 3-Pointer On Senior Night Because It Has ALL The Feels

Robert Lewis is a high school student in his senior year at Franklin Road Academy in Nashville and just had the night of his freaking life after being given the opportunity to suit up for the basketball team by coach John Pierce on Senior Night.

Lewis loves being involved in sports so much that he’s the team manager for the soccer, football and basketball teams. So the idea of throwing on the uniform for a night was a gift all by its lonesome.

And then he ends up nailing a 3-pointer as time expired, and did so with his younger brother defending him. And then everyone stormed the court. That’s about as storybook as it gets. If this doesn’t force things to get a little dusty, I’m not sure anything ever will.
