A Watonga High School Senior pulled off something Tuesday night, they’ll be talking about for a while. 

Zane Plummer, 18, has autism, but he also is Watonga’s basketball team manager. Zane, a senior this year, was allowed to dress out for Tuesday night’s game against Cordell. And with Cordell’s blessing late in the game, Cordell players stood back and allowed Zane Plummer to take a few shots from the three point line.

Zane drained the shot on his second try, off the glass. 

Zane’s mother Shawnda Plumber is very proud of her son.

“Stays busy all of the time, loves life,” she said. “If we could all see life through his eyes, our world would be wonderful.” 

Zane has also been Watonga’s football team manager since he was a freshman, and he plays in the school’s marching band.

This past fall, the senior class also recognized Zane for having the best personality in his class.
