Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Alek Wolfe, an eighth-grader at Saint Albans City School in St. Albans, Vt., can you tell you all about that:
He’s competed in cross country events, manages the boys basketball team, and even provides color commentary during the games.
He also happens to be blind.
That didn’t stop him last Thursday from fulfilling a dream of playing for the school’s team. “It was nothing that I was expecting,” Wolfe said. His coach Scott surprised him by asking if he wanted to inbound a play.
With the cameras rolling, Alek got the ball. His first shot looped out. Second attempt, not quite. Then the third try was a charm!
