OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Randy Chesser always delivers the game-ending countdown.
His daughter, Emily, hurries before time expires to make the shot on the 8-foot dirt path she's created around the basketball goal.
Then she celebrates.
"The Dale Lady Pirates have won the state title!"
The Jan. 9 game was not for the state championship, but Emily suited up for the first time ever in Dale red, gold and white. The special-needs freshman found her own triumph in making her first official basket during the first quarter of a win against Oklahoma Christian School, The Oklahoman reported.
