COVINGTON, KENTUCKY (FOX19) - A northern Kentucky middle school made a young boy's dream come true and made fans in the crowd smile.

Holmes Middle School 8th grade basketball team played their final home game Saturday afternoon versus Woodland Middle School.

It wasn't just the usual team taking the floor Saturday. The team was joined by Ethan Workman, a boy with disabilities who usually helps keep track of the points for Holmes, said Jeanette Robinson.

Ethan's father, Dale Workman, said that the entire team asked for Ethan to be suited up and for Ethan to get a chance to play.

Ethan had the support of the crowd as he took his shot on the court.
