The Lake View basketball team has two mangers Adan Capichina and Michael fox. Both have physical limitations that enable them from playing in varsity sports but still have the love for the game. While Michael was born with cerebral palsy Adan's story line is little different, after a varsity tennis match last year the unexpected happened.
"I went home to take a nap then I woke up because I didn't feel good and that when I just fell and couldn't move my left side," said Capichina.
What Michael had was a stroke and with that complication no more high school sports or basketball, the sport he loved. So to fill the void his dad mentioned being a manger for one of the high school teams. For Michael his route in becoming a manger was a little different.
Even though different routes got them to the Lake view program both Adan and Michaels parents say being apart of the team has changed them.
"We come and we see that he's able to get thou the doors he's able to communicate with the coaches he knows what's going on with the score he follows the team so beyond his classroom work it gives him something he's excited about,"said Michael's father.
"Going to therapy and doctors visits was so different its was a huge life adjustment for us, so him having basketball was a really great help to him because it made him feel like he was apart of something," said Adan mother Rita Capichina.
According to coach Chaney, Michael and Adan are apart of something, players and coaches treat them like one of the guys and says he's lucky to have them apart of the program.
