Awesome story - check it out - Blind basketball player

CINCINNATI -- Much like most high school basketball players, Juandez “Dez” Scruggs has a pretty good idea what he can and can’t do on the court.
Some kids know they can’t jump that high, while others have come to terms they can’t shoot the ball with any consistency from behind the 3-point line.
But Scruggs, a Hughes High School senior, has his own struggles that separate him from your average player: The 5-foot-10 forward can’t see – at least not all that well.
“I can see you (a little but you're) like a dot,” is the way the swingman describes to others what it’s like to live with his impairment, Leber optic atrophy.
