Deer Valley (Ariz.) basketball players rush court for special-needs student

Richard Obert, USA Today HSS

Korben Flory had the kind of moment that sticks in memory forever, not only for him but those who were a part of it.

At the end of Glendale Deer Valley’s JV boys basketball game against Avondale Westview, Flory, a special-needs student who is a manager on the varsity basketball team, got into the game, and, given the ball, took a couple of dribbles and drained a 3-point shot. The Deer Valley varsity players immediately rushed the court and celebrated the only shot Flory took.

“As soon as he went to the scorer’s table, our players all got out their phones (to videotape it),” coach Jed Dunn said.
