To an 11-year-old kid, there might not be many things cooler than getting free pizza for a year.

Now, Cody Collins gets to find out just how amazing it is.

Collins hit a half-court shot at halftime of Thursday's game at Kennesaw State, earning him complimentary pies from Papa John's through next February.

It's often joked about that prizes given away for hitting promotional half-courters at basketball games can be weak, but to an 11-year-old, pizza is pretty much currency.

The reaction by Collins and his buddy under the basket, who provided the "It's in the hole!" reaction while the ball was still in flight, was just awesome. Now, they're welcome to literally be fat and happy for a year at no charge.

You've just got to hope that, for the delivery guy's sake, Collins has already been taught how to properly tip on a free meal.
