Dizzy Grant will stop by Laurel High School to recognize the men’s varsity basketball team as Junior Phenoms for the tremendous support they demonstrated for their 4 foot 1 teammate and student coach, Seth Kraft.

The Locomotives caught the attention of the Harlem Globetrotters after the 18-year-old high school senior joined his teammates on the court on Saturday night against Billings Senior High School and video of it went viral.

"As the shortest Globetrotter in our team’s history, I absolutely loved seeing this story of perseverance and teamwork,” said 5-foot 2-inch Too Tall Hall.  “Seth and his team showed ‘Globetrotter Spirit’ in every way last Saturday night.”

The team will be recognized for their amazing sportsmanship and teamwork in a special pep rally by the Globetrotter. Dizzy will stop by to wish them luck in their upcoming divisional tournament and hand deliver tickets for the team to attend the Globetrotters game at RimRock Auto Arena on Sunday, March 2, at 2:00 p.m. 

Known as the Ambassadors of Goodwill™, the Globetrotters always look for stories of amazing kids who spread their own goodwill and demonstrate traits like helping others, assisting in the community, outstanding teamwork and being positive role models.  The Globetrotters Junior Phenom Award is the team’s way of saying, “Thank you,” and applauding those individuals who go above and beyond.
