CLOVIS, Calif. (AP) -- Students mobbed the floor. Tears flowed. And the hero left the court on the shoulder of two football players.

Anyone who thinks only Hollywood could create such a scene hasn't heard of Ryan Belflower.

A long-range shot Belflower sank at the buzzer of a high school basketball game didn't make or break the outcome, or set a scoring record. But it brought nearly everyone in the gymnasium at Clovis East High School to tears.

I have met these boys on a few occasions through a mutual family friend. Ryan is one of the most energetic and wonderful people to be around and this amazing event really warms my heart in the midst of all the evil i see, hear and read about.

I just wanted to share this great story with the members of BTS (thanx ADVISOR for pointing me in the right direction to post it)

WARNING:kleenex maybe needed at end of story to dry ur eyes

Couldnt have happened to a greater kid IMO

That's a great story! Thanks for sharing it!

While in college, I'd often have the chance to volunteer to help a few kids out with taking notes and studying....And I have to admit that the majority of those guys were some of the most dedicated and inspiring people I have ever met - Their physical and mental challenges are like fuel for the fire....And when they succeed, and you get to see that huge smile cover their face, you know there's no greater bliss then the state of mind they must be in....

It's good to know there's a few reporters out there that aren't so covered in scum that they can stop and smell the roses every once in a while.....
