Seventh Woods, 15, throws down a legit Dunk of the Year contender

Seventh Woods has a new solution for avoiding defenders looking to draw a charge on the break: Jump over them. Of course, few humans have this capability. Let alone 15-year-olds. Who are listed at 6-foot-1. Then again, Seventh Woods isn't your ordinary human.

As a freshman, Woods averaged 19.3 points, 4.3 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game, leading Columbia (S.C.) School to the the South Carolina Independent Schools Association Class AAA state title game. In the meantime, he compiled a highlight reel that has more than nine million views and rivals any freshman in the mixtape era.

If this dunk during a 60-44 win over crosstown rival Dreher High at the Chick-Fil-A Classic is any indication, Woods' sophomore mixtape might be the best sequel since Godfather II. He finished with 26 points and eight boards in the victory.

Dubbed "the next LeBron James" by a handful of outlets, Woods actually beat out the Miami Heat superstar for the No. 1 spot on SportsCenter's Top 10 plays this weekend.

As for the name, here's what Seventh told The State in October: "I like my name. God finished his work on the seventh day. It’s special and original." Yup, pretty much.
