Lugoff-Elgin High School (LEHS) JV basketball players have such a love for their manager that they’ve asked him to play in a game with them. Many of them have even offered him their own jerseys.
On this Thursday, Feb. 5, Alex Martin will join his fellow students on the LEHS court as he tips off in his first high school athletic competition. The game against Blythewood High School starts at 7 p.m.
Martin has never let his Down Syndrome diagnosis hold him back as he and his father Bob attend all of the team’s practices and games.
