High School player Devin Thomas breaks backboard on dunk (Video)
Devin Thomas of Central Dauphin High School (Penn.) is becoming famous thanks to a monstrous dunk he threw down during his team’s basketball game Thursday night. Thomas is a senior and headed to play at Wake Forest. He took a pass from teammate Nick Seefeldt and dunked it so ferociously he broke the backboard.
“I didn’t think I dunked it that hard for it to break,” Thomas said. “Guess I did, so we’ll continue this [Friday].”
Thomas’ had a game-high 18 points and his team was leading Greencastle-Antrim in the Mid-Penn boys’ final 39-30 in the third quarter when play was suspended because of the dunk. The game will be resumed on Friday evening.
Another cool aspect of the dunk is that Eagles running back LeSean McCoy witnessed it. Shady tweeted before the game Thursday “Heard alot about Devin Thomas from Central Dauphin gotta go check him out tonight…!!!!!”
Was he impressed? You better believe it.
“Devin Thomas from central dauphin is REAL…. Ripped every thing down WOW!!!!!!” Shady said.
He sure picked a good night to check out the young stud. Thomas now joins an exclusive group of players who have shattered a backboard on a dunk. Well done.
