"Oh, my gosh," is right. If Easton Gamoke's name hasn't already made him the coolest kid at Winona (Minn.) Middle School, his remarkable feat this week probably sealed the deal.
The 13-year-old broke a 44-44 tie with a full-court, game-winning shot at the buzzer while competing for his Winona YMCA Runnin' Rebels at a tournament in Holmen, Wis., over the weekend, according to a Minneapolis Star Tribune post.
Then, when KMSP-TV showed up to interview the eighth-grader about the "one in a million" shot, he did it again. On his first attempt. Holy Gamoke.
As classmate Austin Weatherhead told the TV station, "All girls love basketball players." Well, the ones who can make two one-in-a-million shots in a week, anyway.
