The act of sportsmanship between two rival high school basketball teams is now documented in a city proclamation.

During today's city council meeting, members designated Monday as "Coronado T-Birds and Franklin Cougars Sportsmanship Day".  

In a true display of sportsmanship, Franklin High's Jonathon Montanez passed the ball to special needs student, Mitchell Marcus during the last seconds of their final basketball game.     

Mitchell was able to make his first shot and the story went viral, and got national attention. The proclamation was spearheaded by Kiss FM DJs, Mike and Tricia.

To hear from the team, head over to our Facebook page, we've posted the video of their comments to the Mayor and council.
