    Rochelle Benton and her son, Landon are the only parent-child player combo within Charlotte's Rollin' Hornets wheelchair basektball organization.

Both were born with tibial dysplasia, a congenital birth defect that led to both of them having their legs amputated above the knee when they were about a year and a half old.
