    Hey does anyone remember the special education kid that hit all those three's at the end of a prep basketball game recently? I'm doing a column and I can't find anything on him without more info. Thanks

    I know he was autistic, not mentally retarded.

    Not a criticism, just a note: Almost everything on that page has expired.

    Not all special education students are mentally retarded. In fact, I'd bet a majority are not. There are a variety of conditions that can qualify a child for special education, including autism.

    I didn't actually open the page, just found it through The Google. My bad.

    SC - Good point. I just figured if the thread-starter knew he was autistic it would be easier to do google searches.

    Thanks for the help folks, gotta love this site. By the way I never said anything about retarded, it was a special ed student that played like six downs of 8 man football the other night.

    If there were six downs in an 8-man football game, does that mean the officiating crew was retarded?

    David Muir from ABC News did a piece on him for World News Tonight. Either go to ABC News and look to the webcasts to see the piece, or even key it in Yahoo. It was an excellent piece.
