Some guys have made a career out of making a shot like this. And there’s time yet for 13-year-old Easton Gamoke.
In an incredible few hours for the 8th grader, he made the full-court buzzer-beating shot of a lifetime to vault his Winona YMCA Runnin’ Rebels to victory at the weekend. And then he did it again – on his first try – as news stations requested that he re-enact the sensational shot.
Gamoke and his YMCA team were taking part in a tournament in Holmen, Wisconsin, and appeared to be heading in to overtime. Then, with just seconds left, Gamoke launched an ambitious one-handed shot from inside the other team’s three-point arc.
News crews in Minnesota were on the scene in the hours that followed Gamoke’s unbelievable match-winner. And the kid didn’t disappoint after he was asked to attempt the shot again.
