WASHINGTON (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — He wasn't a player on the team all year, but he was definitely the MVP on Friday night.

Fifteen-year-old Jaeden Morales, a student with Asperger's syndrome, didn't make the junior varsity basketball team at Uxbridge High School in Massachusetts. Instead, he'd been helping out as assistant team manager. But during the last game of the season Friday, the coach put him in for the game's final minutes.

He scored a few baskets during his time on the court, delighting the home fans. His mother, Jennifer Morales, shared the footage of her son's scoring spree against St. Bernard's Central Catholic High School on her Facebook page. It had more than 14,000 views as of Thursday morning.

Fans can be heard chanting, "M-V-P!" at one point in the video, and at the end of the game, Jaeden's teammates swarm him in celebration.
