A teenager with Down syndrome has joined the Philadelphia 76ers after an amazing performance with his high school basketball team.

Kevin Grow, a senior at Bensalem High School, served as the team’s manager for four years — he got his first chance on the court last week, according to an article from People magazine.

Grow scored four three-pointer shots in the fourth quarter. Bensalem won, 64-40. Check it out in the video clip above.

After the stellar performance, Grow signed a ceremonial two-day contract with the Philadelphia 76ers. As a member of the team, Grow will participate in pregame activities Tuesday night as the 76ers take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
