Local high school basketball star overcomes unique physical challenge

Posted: Updated:

Marcus James has been playing hoops since he was 3-years-old, and despite a unique physical condition, he’s developed into a top notch talent.

James was born with only two fingers on his right hand but that hasn’t stopped him from playing basketball at the varsity level.He’s earned a starting spot on the team and has become a big scoring threat for the Francis Howell Central Spartans.

James leads the team with both scoring and assists per game and has led the Spartans to an 11-5 record.

James says his condition doesn’t even phase him anymore when he’s on the court. He believes any young athlete can accomplish their dreams no matter what challenge they may face.

His ultimate goal is to play basketball at the collegiate level once he graduates high school.
