BOCA RATON, Fla. – Jamarion Styles lost his arms years ago to a rare bacterial infection, but that’s not stopping him from playing the sport he loves.

Styles, 13, became an online sensation after video posted to Twitter captured him sinking a 3-pointer just before the buzzer went off. The video was shared by several major sports networks.

Styles said he just loves playing ball.

“I love the game, personally,” Styles told WPEC. “My teammates help me out good and my school is good.”

Styles said despite his disability, he plans to continue to pursue his passion for basketball. He shared some advice for other kids who may also be differently-abled.

“Just stay positive and you can do whatever you can if you want to,” said Jamarion.
