Four years ago, Owen Groesser made ESPN’s Top 10 plays on “SportsCenter” for hitting two three-pointers in a game for Van Hoosen Middle School in Rochester Hills.
The crowd went wild that night against Troy’s Boulan Park, screaming, chanting and waving signs emblazoned with Owen’s name. A Twitter campaign, called #GetOwenOnSportsCenter, worked to perfection as video of Owen, who has Down syndrome, went viral.
Now, Owen and his long-range stroke are back. He’s now a senior at Rochester Adams and hit a three-pointer in his final high school home game Tuesday night, a loss to Sterling Heights Stevenson.
