TULSA, OK -- The cheers are loud, the focus is intense and their spirits are sky high. The Tulsa Jammers wheelchair basketball team is rolling along two wheels and two points at a time.

"It's a very competitive game, it's a rough game - they play rough but they're just having fun," said Tulsa Jammers coach Bradley Forbes.

It's a team full of stories to tell - a team full of unique personalities.

"There's Noah, who comes with his long shot. He's always smiling. There's Karina, who's always aggressive," Forbes said. "Everybody has something different to offer."

Their differences have formed friendships, built bonds and have even brought opposing teams together.

"All I have is tibia torsions in my knees so that's not as big of a disability compared to everybody else," said Jammers player Travis Hutchinson. "Just to be with them and understand how they are is a big thing."
