Video: The inspiring story of Mattituck graduate Jovan Booker

As a senior on the 2011 Mattituck High School basketball team, Jovan Booker was a part of history when the Tuckers won the Class B Long Island Championship.

It was a storybook season, one the players will never forget.

Basketball remains a big part of Booker’s life and his inspiring story can be viewed in a recently released 13-minute video on YouTube. When Booker was three months old, it was discovered that he had a birth defect: He was missing a tibia in his right leg. Seven months later, the leg was amputated, and Booker has had a prosthesis ever since.
