Check out the shot seventh grader Max Mitchell made at Gilmore Middle School last week during a basketball game.

Max, a boy who has a disability, made a shot many of us could not have made and it brought his coach Allen Smith to tears, according to a story by CBS 58.

Smith told the news reporter that Max doesn’t often get to play because it can be too intense, but during this game Max kept his focus and made a big play.
