Act of Sportsmanship Gives Texas High Schooler Shot at Glory

With a minute-and-a-half left -- Coronado leading, but only by 10 -- Coach Morales put in his manager. "And I just started hearing, 'Mitchell, Mitchell,'" Morales says.
But here's where the fairytale fell apart. Although his teammates did everything they could to get Mitchell a basket, each time they passed him the ball, he either missed the shot, or, like on their last possession, booted it out of bounds, turning the ball over to the other team with just seconds left.
"He wasn't going to be able to score, but I was hoping that he was happy that he was just put in the game," Morales says. He couldn't have imagined what happened next.
