Special Olympian authors book on magical basketball season

“A Magical Season” by John Wheeler is a small book overflowing with excitement and joy as he describes this magical season of basketball.

Basketball is obviously a game he loves, and he takes us through the games of their 2018-2019 championship season. John has been involved with Special Olympics Shelby County for over eleven years. According to the short biography on the back of the book, he also has been involved in track and field, softball and flag football. I am sure he enjoys all of those sports, but I can’t imagine that he loves any of these as much as he loves basketball.
