BRIGHTON, N.Y. (WROC) — McQuaid Jesuit High School senior Jack Murphy has been handling the basketball team’s scorebook for three years, but he never got a chance to take the court.
Until last night.
Thursday was senior night for the Knights and head coach Jack Leasure thought it would be a great opportunity to give Murphy a shot to play.
And when he did play, he stole the show.
Jack Murphy made a layup, and then followed that up with a buzzer-beating 3 pointer at the end of the game — and the crowd went wild.
Coaches say Murphy practices with the team every day, and that he “runs every sprint.”
