Zeeland East (Mich.) junior Jules Hoogland is awesome.
She possesses the type of touch on the basketball court that anyone would aspire to have.
She is a 4.0 student.
Perseverance? Yep. She’s got that too.
Although Hoogland slowly lost her eyesight and was fully blind by age 3, she started playing basketball in middle school.
Of course, it wasn’t easy. “It’s a process, but it’s fun,” she told MLive. “It is frustrating at times, but I just keep going.”
That dedication and drive led her to the hardwood of Zeeland’s Unified Sports basketball team, a squad that includes students with and without disabilities.
And on March 22, in front of a crowd of 2,500, she proved that dreams sometimes require a different kind of vision—one that this pure shooter 100%, without question, embraces!
Standing-O, Jules Hoogland. Count us as part of the additional crowd joining in on the awe-inspiring moment…
