Watch High School Player’s Once in a Lifetime Game Winning Shot [VIDEO]
Like nearly every other kid who played or enjoyed sports, I daydreamed of a time when the pressure was on and my team needed me to come through in the clutch to win the game. Whether it was hitting a grand slam in the final game of the World Series with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th inning or throwing the game winning touchdown pass as time ran out in the Super Bowl, I could picture the crowd going completely bananas and my teammates rallying around me as I pumped my fists in the air. For one high school basketball player in Nebraska, that daydream became a reality.
Pawnee City High School senior Hadley Sejkora is one of his team’s leading scorers so it only made sense that when his team found themselves tied 37-37 with 3.8 seconds left in the game, Sejkora was the guy they would want to take the final potentially game winning shot. By now you’ve probably figured out what happened, but you probably didn’t expect it to happen like this:
It should be noted that had the ball hit the top of the backboard, that shot wouldn’t have counted. By rule, the ball would have been considered out of bounds and therefore out of play. Fortunately for Sejkora, everything played out perfectly for his childhood dream to become very real.
