It was a big night in Owasso. Nathan Mitcham suited up with the Rams and played during the last four minutes of Tuesday night's basketball game against Sand Springs.

Nathan is a special needs student at Owasso High School. He's been the team manager this season and his classmates wanted him to have at least one chance to dress for a game before he graduates.

So, the community took to Twitter. After Nathan's story went viral, with everyone from Kevin Durant to Toby Keith spreading the word, the OSSAA made an exception.

Nathan scored eight points, including two three-pointers, helping Owasso beat Sand Springs 75-55.

See his big night in the video above.
