Lainy’s involvement on the team was spurred on by Norman High School senior Brennan Hockett, who piloted a program called Tiger Teammates, offering kids with special needs the opportunity to take part in school sports.

Brennan got the idea for the club because of her family's involvement with the Special Olympic's program. “Lainy has a great personality and great sense of humor," Hockett told BuzzFeed. “I think people need to realize people with special needs can do everything we can do — it just may take them longer or take more explanation."
