His only shot of the entire season

Clay Walker is 18, and lives near Des Moines, Iowa. He's legally blind, but he's always loved basketball and actually joined his high school team. It's hard for him to really play, so he's never been in a game, but he always comes wearing his uniform. It was an honorary thing, until Senior Night.

Since he's a senior, the coach actually put Clay into the game, for the first time. He only got to take one shot -- his only shot of the season -- and he drained it from 15 feet. Everyone went nuts. Even the players on the other team clapped for him. Clay's team was behind, but wining or losing didn't seem to matter. One of his teammates said the only part of the game that truly mattered was Clay hitting that shot.
