OSG High: Sixers Sign Down's Syndrome HS Student To Contract

((HT: CSN Philly))

The HQ showed the efforts of Kevin Grow a few days ago...

He is the Pennsylvania high schooler with Down's Syndrome who hit four three-pointers on Senior Night for Bensalem (PA) High School. Because of his efforts on and off the court, the Sixers are signing him to a two-day contract where he will take part in a team's practice, eat dinner with the team, and get some SIxers gear out of the deal.

When the Sixers host the Cavaliers on Tuesday, Grow gets a jersey, his own locker in the locker room, and will stand with his new teammates for the National Anthem.

Here's the signing at Bensalem High...

Grow and his teammates will be honored during the Cavs game during a timeout as well...
