Cypress junior varsity boys basketball players congratulate Blaze Vigil after he made a three pointer.

Cypress team manager, who is autistic and has prosthetic feet, delivers big shot


The Register's Jeff Miller writes about the big shot made by Blaze Vigil, the manager for Cypress' junior varsity boys basketball team who has prosthetic feet and is autistic.

He got in the final game of the season against Kennedy. Vigil had an open look for a layup and missed. A teammate got the rebound and passed the ball to Vigil, but he missed another close shot.

That’s when Vigil rebounded his miss, took the ball out to the 3-point line and drained a shot that made his teammates and the crowd go wild.

Columnist Jeff Miller will have much more on Vigil’s fantastic moment soon, but, for now, enjoy the video. And after you’ve watched it several times, share it with a friend. It’s a nice way to start your weekend.
