Teen With No Arms Becomes Unlikely Basketball Hero

Jamarion Styles lost his hands and most of his arms when he was a baby, due to a rare bacterial infection. But it couldn’t destroy the spirit of this 13-year-old to become a basketball player. Every week, he came to a community center hoping to shoot hoops with the other kids. But he was always rejected due to his disability. After months of denial, Jamarion approached Darian Williams, the basketball coach at Eagle’s Landing Middle School in Boca Raton, Florida, asking for a chance in his team. Williams granted his wish and added him to the school’s basketball team. Later, Jamarion Styles proved his incredible skills when he sank two 3-pointer shots and brought his team to victory.
