James Brown is the only senior on the Centerville Tornadoes basketball team. “I’ve always had in the back of my mind we would have a James Brown night,” coach Kory Muller told us.

“James is just kind of special.”

Brown, who was born with cerebral palsy, is “the pulse of our school,” Muller said.

By the time he left the game, he had tallied up 25 points, three rebounds and a standing ovation.
