It happened at Mater Dei School in Bethesda, MD, where the headmaster gave three students a chance to give the entire school the day off on the Monday following the Super Bowl: if they could hit a basketball shot. A seventh- and an eighth-grader took shots from the 3-point line, and both missed. For the final shot, a first-grader was chosen, and he had to make a free throw.
That first grader was named Blake Harper, and he is now a hero.
Since first graders are, like, seven years old, a regulation free throw is no easy task. This kid was clutch, and probably powered the Ravens to victory.
