Teen With Down Syndrome To Play For Harlem Globetrotters
Fresh off a stint with the Philadelphia 76ers, a teen with Down syndrome is being tapped to play with the famed Harlem Globetrotters.
Kevin Grow, 18, will appear in a March 9 game with the Globetrotters at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The teen and his dad will be seated on the team bench and Grow will take to the court as a 3-point specialist during the fourth quarter, the Globetrotters said.
Grow came to national prominence when a video of him scoring four 3-pointers with his Bensalem, Pa. high school team went viral.

The Sixers signed Grow to a two-day contract earlier this month, giving the teen his own locker and jersey and honoring him and his high school teammates during a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Globetrotters say that Grow will be the first player since Wilt Chamberlain to join both their team and the 76ers.
