Both teams won this game.

Get out your tissues...


(CBS News) EL PASO, Texas -- Coach Peter Morales of the Coronado High School Thunderbirds in El Paso, Texas, makes no qualms about it: he has a favorite on this team.

Team manager Mitchell Marcus has a developmental disability, but he far surpasses everyone here when it comes to love of the game.

"He's just an amazing person that our basketball team loves being around," Morales says



Just wearing a jersey was enough for Mitchell, but what he didn't know -- what no one knew at the time -- was that the coach planned to play him at the end, no matter what the score.

4. You do everything you can to raise a son like Jonathon Montanez or coach Morales..

and when you see it happen you know that there are just simply stunningly fine and kind people out there.

If you are raising a mentally challenged child..like we are with our grandson..then seeing this helps you breathe a
sigh in relief. That mom's face and words say it all.
