A+ A A-

Owen Groesser is normally the Van Hoosen junior high school basketball team's manager, but not this game.  On the final game of the season, the coach made him a starter. 

His teammates passed him the ball on the first play of the game and he nailed a 3 pointer!  Within 2 minutes, he nailed a second three pointer!  The crowd went absolutely wild.

The Van Hoosen junior high school students quickly spread the story on Twitter with the hashtag #GetOwenOnSportsCenter.  Within hours, Owen was on ESPN's Sportcenter!!

And that's what's good,



The Make-A-Wish foundation truly does some amazing things to make kids dreams come true. 8 year-old Atticus Lane-Dupree learned he had cancer last year, but that didn't deter him from playing the game he loves.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation organized a soccer game between a team of 8-year-olds, and the MLS Portland Timbers.

Not only did Atticus Lane-Dupre's team beat the Timbers, but he scored 4 goals! The video is amazing as 3,000 fans cheered the kids on.

We at Good World News wish Atticus well in his fight against cancer, and also keep your dreams alive maybe one day we will be watching him as well on the Timbers!

Have a great day, and let the Good News be Yours!



Josh Hamilton is known for his interaction with his fans, but on this day he took it one step further.  Hamilton signed a ball for an excited fan during a game between the Angels and A's which in itself is awesome for a fan.  He also added a message on the ball which read "Your hair is awesome" :-).  The fans reaction is priceless.


Have a great day, and let the good news be yours :-)
