Twins with Autism Earn Chance to Shine on the Basketball Court

February 14, 2014



Friendship High School in Lubbock, Texas, may have the most dedicated basketball team managers in the country. The team's coach says 15 year-old twins Matthew and Andrew Reyna showed exactly how dedicated they are the day their father passed away. Matthew and Andrew both have autism and when their father, who had been sick, died they still showed up to the team's game later that day. Their coaches were so impressed by their devotion that they decided to let the twins play in the last game of the season. Watch what happened next in the CBS News video above.
