The coaches all worked together to make something very special happen for Tristan.With dwarfism, he only stands a few feet tall, but that doesn’t wipe the smile off his face while he helps the team warm up for the game, and pals around with the boys. ‘I talked to my assistants and said it’d be really cool if we could get him a bucket, or at least get him in the game because he can make the shot,’ said Varsity head coach Scottie Wright.
