Shot of a lifetime

A high school junior named Andrew Regan, who lives near Denver, Colorado, has Down syndrome. But he's also an athlete. His high school has a "unified" basketball team, where differently abled kids play together.

This month a video went viral after Andrew snagged a rebound in a game and sunk a buzzer-beater all the way from HALF COURT. His teammates and coaches went nuts. It was the kind of thing most players only dream of doing. But it wasn't just luck. A friend who volunteers on the team says Andrew practices that shot all the time in his driveway. So when he drained it in the game, it really didn't surprise him much. Local news reporters have interviewed him, and he's enjoyed the attention.
