Lewis is a manager for the boys basketball team at FRA and has Down Syndrome.

Friday night, head coach John Pierce had Lewis dress, wearing number 45, and put him in the game against University School of Nashville with 90 seconds to play.

Lewis swished his second three-point attempt and FRA students carried him off the court.
