High school basketball player with Down Syndrome hits 3-pointer

Scotty Lubkeman, Golden High School (Colorado) basketball team was playing D’Evelyn last weekend. With 4 seconds remaining, coach John Anderson got him in the game. The team pushed the ball up when Scotty stepped up and fired a three.

“We love Scotty,” said senior Nolan Holmes. “We have been teammates since our freshman year, so we have really grown up together. The biggest thing for us is he can really shoot the ball, so we we’re glad he got in a varsity game and hit the big three-pointer.”
