Coach creates special moment
Wednesday, December 12, 2012 5:07 PM

It was a moment that Continental varsity basketball player Brandon Schmidt will never forget, and neither will most of the fans, players and coaching staffs attending Paulding’s boys basketball visit to Continental on Friday evening.

And, it was all thanks to the good heart of Paulding head coach Shawn Brewer.

But, then it happened to a very special person, Brandon Schmidt, a Down’s Syndrome young man, who has spent his life watching his beloved Continental Pirates from the bench.

Included in those teams have been two older brothers who started earlier on the varsity squad.
