    thank you so much for posting this, I'm one of the students who stormed the court and picked up Mitchell, i grew up with him my whole life and if you only knew how much this means to him… though hes struggled throughout his life hes always managed to have a smile on his face. I'm so glad we were able to finally share his wonderful story across the nation. He is truely an inspiration to all of us. thank you chive, KCCO and god bless.

    This was great. Two beautiful kids. One wanting so much to play and the other helping him to achieve his goal. Glad it was put on video so many can see the kids in our future are something to be very proud of .
