Mitchell Marcus, a special needs student, spent three years as the team manager for the Coronado boys basketball team. Head Coach Peter Morales decided to pay Mitchell back for all he had done for the Thunderbirds by letting Marcus dress with varsity on Senior night, his last home game at Coronado, and play in the final minutes against rival Franklin. What happened next will be something that everyone involved will remember forever. NewsChannel 9's Aaron Rich reports.
