When both teams win

Coronado

Coronado

Peter Morales, the boys basketball coach at Coronado High School in El Paso, Texas has a soft spot for his team manager, a developmentally disabled boy named Mitchell.

Having never played an actual game for Coronado, Mitchell was the heart and soul of the team, giving motivation and strength to his teammates.

Still, as much as he loved his role with the team, his desire to play was as strong as ever, and during the final minute of the final game, Mitchell finally got his chance.

What happened was unexpected and is an amazing example of sportsmanship.

    What a nice story. That kid on the other team is a real hero. I bet his parents are so proud.
