AKRON, Ohio — A Firestone High School senior's dream came true during Tuesday night's basketball game at Green.

Isaiah Corn has been a member of Firestone's Junior Varsity team all season.

During Senior Night, Corn entered the game with three minutes left and scored a free throw and two three pointers.

Corn is autistic and his parents said they were told when he was younger that he may never be able to walk.

He dreams of becoming the first NBA player with autism.
