Video of Michigan middle-schooler with Down Syndrome goes viral

Owen Groesser is a 13-year-old middle school student with Down Syndrome who lives in Rochester Hills.  During a recent school basketball game, he came off the bench and made two three-point shots.  His effort was featured on ESPN's SportsCenter as a Top Ten play.

Watch the video below of Owen playing basketball and the crowd cheering him on.

Unfortunately, far too many children (estimated at around 90%) with Down Syndrome are aborted before they given the chance to succeed.
