OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- A Shawnee Mission North senior with Down syndrome stole the spotlight Friday, when the boy's basketball team let him start the game and take the first shot during Senior Night.
Sam Rogers, 18, has been the team manager for two years and has never missed a game. So moving him from the bench to the court was very special to the teen and his family.
"He’s always wanted to play and now he finally gets his chance," said Sam's mom, Kelly Rogers, before the game. "I will probably cry. I brough two things of Kleenex."
