Joseph Summers

Unified Basketball | 1st year with SOAZ

Very Sociable, Loves to Laugh and Make People Happy

According to Joseph, his mother is his biggest fan! His high school track coach told him about Special Olympics, so he tried out for the basketball team and made it. Joseph says that the experience has been nothing short of life-changing, saying, I played basketball on other teams, but this Special Olympics team is different, it just felt easy for me. I am more comfortable because everyone understands, no one ever judges me on the court. Playing on this basketball team gives me purpose. When asked about how he felt attending the 2019 World Games, he says, I have never traveled to places like Abu Dhabi before, and playing competitive basketball, with everyone watching, is a dream come true.
