Nice special interest story: PSU athlete w/ autistic brother

When I watch my two boys play together I mostly see the competition getting heated and my younger (not-as-yet-diagnosed but higher functioning) son taking out his frustrations because he has trouble thriving in his older (diagnosed and intellectually disable/mentally retarded) brother's shadow. Even the situation is different with the brothers in this story, somehow it gives me hope.
