Ebony Gainey Plays For Dayton

We know what you're thinking about that headline...

Why do I care...???

Well, Gainey is a graduating senior for the University of Dayton. Gainey never was able to play because of a heart condition detected just before her freshman season was set to begin. Her older sister had died of a heart attack a few months earlier before school was going to start for Gainey.

The school kept her on scholarship for four seasons as a team assistant. Coach Jim Jabir let her start on senior day and drew up a play for her to get in the books.

Here's her day, thanks to Dayton Athletics...

She calls it the best two minutes of her life.
The HQ agrees...
