GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. – A disabled high school student’s dream has come true.

Jacob Oldknow has cerebral palsy.

During senior night, the basketball team let him suit up and start their last regular season home game.

He said his school community never treated him differently and he appreciates it.

“It was great. It’s a credit to the community and the players for letting me do this,” Oldknow said. “It’s all to them.”

Oldknow also manages the school’s basketball, football and baseball teams and each of their Twitter accounts.
