This right here is one of those shots that will make legends out of high school kids. Yeah, it might’ve been a regular season game, but when you sink a game-winner from the opposite free throw line off a rebound, you’re going down in history at your school.

To make it even better, this kid is only a freshman. He’s got 3 more years to ride to the wave of this shot. Automatic king status when he walks through those halls. Not to mention he’s already a legit prospect.

It should be noted that the kid who hit that shot for Evanston tonight, Blake Peters, is actually a legit prospect. Freshman guard starting on varsity for one of the top teams in the state. Great shooter, tough kid, bright future.

Save some poon for the rest of the school, buddy.

That answered prayer also landed him a spot as the #1 play last night on SportsCenter. SC doesn’t mean as much as it used to, but the Top Ten still plays. You land at that #1 spot and you have something to hang your hat for the rest of your life.

It’s official: #1 @ESPNSportsCentr pic.twitter.com/TRFapxTcr2
