A boy with Down syndrome made a big crowd in Oklahoma erupt in cheers and applause when he took one incredible basketball shot.
Tyler Hanks got to participate in the Olive Wildcats’ game going up against the Depew Hornets, KOCO reported Thursday.
It was the athlete’s first game, and he made sure it was unforgettable.
Video footage of the game showed the player, wearing a jersey with the number 14 on it, racing down the court as he dribbled the ball.
As the crowd cheered him on, he lifted the ball and took his shot. The ball bounced once off the goal, then landed squarely in the hoop.
The stands erupted in cheers, and everyone got to their feet as his fellow players congratulated him.
His mother spoke with the outlet about the game and said, “He was having so much fun!”
