CRAWFORD COUNTY UNIFIED BASKETBALL EXHIBITION GAME

Friday night was full of fun and excitement as the 1st Annual High School – Crawford County Chargers unified exhibition basketball game took place in Alex Kish Memorial gymnasium at Bucyrus High School! High school players from Bucyrus, Buckeye Central, Colonel Crawford, Crestline, Galion, and Wynford mixed it up with the Crawford County Chargers in a Team Gray vs Team Red basketball game.

The requirement for the high school players was that they were given a disability that they had to play with the entire game. That allowed the high school players to experience what a person with a disability has to live with every day of their lives. It was interesting to watch how the high school players adjusted to that disability in playing the game.

It was great to see all the smiles, the high fives, and the fun that both teams showed in a game that there was no losing team.

When asked about playing against the high school players, Jeremiah Gale said, “We didn’t play against you tonight, we played WITH YOU!”

Yes Jeremiah, EVERYONE won on this night!
