Colin Jones, the team manager for Interboro High School in Prospect Park, always dreamed of putting on the jersey. His dream came true Monday night as the Buccaneers took on Sun Valley.
Colin got the ball during the team's first possession of the game - and he made the shot!
The crowd went wild!

"He had no trouble on that one," the game's broadcast commentator said.
Colin's mom and sister were in the stands for his big moment.
"He loves basketball and that's all he loves to do so for them to allow him to do that and to live his dream is just amazing," his mom Shannon Bedwell said.
"To see him be able to do what he loves to do makes me really happy because he would do anything to make anyone happy. So that he's able to go out there and do what he loves, it's great," his sister Kylie Bedwell said.
Friends and classmates held up signs for Colin and gave him a standing ovation.
It was certainly a night Colin and everyone else who was there will never forget.
