Special needs player Bryan Doherty scores big on Senior Night (Video)


Pelham High School senior special needs student Bryan Doherty had a night that he will not soon forget, nor will anyone else who was in attendance. Doherty is not only a student at the school, but has served as the manager for the basketball team for the past four years. On Friday night, which was also Senior Night, Doherty was given his chance to play in a game, and to say he made the most of it would be an understatement.

As a special education teacher, I personally have a soft spot in my heart for stories like this and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
