Seth Kraft had a birthday to remember on Saturday when he starred in his Montana high school’s senior nights basketball game and even scored a basket to cap a victory over their local rivals.
Oh yeah. Kraft is a haircut over four-foot tall.
At 4ft 1in, Kraft wasn't a regular starter for the team, but his passion for the game led him to be the boys basketball student-manager and student-coach for the Laurel High School's varsity team for the past four years.
Before the big game, Kraft lead his teammates onto the courtby breaking through a sign held by the cheerleaders with this message: "Seth, you never fall short of amazing us."
"I will steal the ball if I have the chance," Kraft boasted to the Billings Gazette before the game.
"I’m not going to take it easy on them. It’ll be great if I score, but it’s OK if I don’t. I’ll be successful tonight if I make an impact, even a small one."
And, after missing his first shot, Seth scored a bucket before his two-minutes of game time were forever etched on the scorecard.
Fans from both schools filled the gym with a loud ovation for Seth’s first — and only — career points as Laurel won 75-66.
Way to go Seth — and the players from both sides.
