At halftime of a game in the Iolani Prep Classic tournament in Hawaii, a fan was chosen to compete in a shooting challenge, with a free vacation hanging in the balance. After making a lay-up, free throw, and trey, the kid nailed his half-court shot. Then he celebrated, much to his friend's chagrin.

Just look at how much lift he gets on that hit. It's tremendous. This kid has a future in both basketball and football.
