Temidayo Yussuf made himself a hero at a recent high school basketball game in California.
With his school, St. Joseph Notre Dame, down 61-58 with under a second on the clock it didn't look good - especially with the opposition about to take a free throw to seal the win.
But the El Cerrito player missed the extra point and Yussuf was quickest to react.
From there the crowd witnessed a mixture of speed, accuracy, and luck, as the young player spun with ball in hand and unleashed a mammoth shot in hope rather than expectation.
Unbelievably the ball banked in after flying around 80 feet in the air, tying the game at 61-61.
Home fans rushed the court in celebration, but it was to be short-lived.
Despite the heroic efforts of Yussuf, St Joseph Notre Dame went on to lose the game in over-time.
El Cerrito coach Michael Booker questioned whether the shot should have counted but was impressed not the less:
"It was an amazing shot by an amazing player in an amazing game...I'm just glad we finally pulled it out," he told MaxPreps.
