A bad day might have a semi-happy ending for Hugo High basketball player Trey Johnson. The poor kid made national news after scoring a basket on his own goal and costing his team the game in the state quarter-finals.
There really isn't much you can say to a kid that has made that kind of blunder except that it is okay and eventually it will get better. It does suck that in this day and age when you make a gaffe like this it will be all over the internet in no time, but hey--that's the world we live in.
Personnel with the Oklahoma City Thunder, specifically general manager Sam Presti, heard about it and decided to do something to try and make Johnson feel a little better.
Keep your heads up #TreyJohnson and the Buffaloes. Your Oklahoma basketball family's with you! Congratulations on a great season. #HugHugo
