The Reason This Kid Is Shovelling Snow Off A Basketball Court Is Honestly Really Inspiring

"I'm shoveling because this is the first time my team has ever made the playoffs. The city isn't going to shovel the court and I can't wait for the sun to melt it. I need to practice now because I want to win."

New York City photographer Manny Midy was walking by the park when he saw this happening.

He posted the image on Facebook as well, where he explained why the young boy was shoveling the basketball court.

"This young man had dedication and determination which he shared with me," Midy told BuzzFeed. "Regardless of how old or young you are, it's about believing in yourself and your dreams. A message children and adults from all walks of life can get behind."
