If someone in BYU’s athletic department hasn’t already reached out to the young men above, they should probably get on that. The ballers you see dressed in church clothes are Mormon missionaries with some serious game.
I’m sure their opponents didn’t imagine a tomahawk dunk was in the forecast when the visiting team was bricking shots before the 2-on-2 game got underway. For what it’s worth, the hoop looked like it may have been lower than 10 feet. But still, no one expected a couple of dudes wearing dress pants and ties to start rocking the rim.
Here is a description of what went down before and during the pick-up game, according to Jared Allen, who told LBS he posted the video on YouTube.
My cousin Cole, a missionary in Dallas Texas, has been dying to play some street ball and got the chance. After playing it cool asking to play because they are ‘Just some white boys’, they were allowed to play and tried to make it look like they weren’t that good. That is until they started to play. Turn up the volume and laugh hysterically. Cole proves that white boys can jump.”
“I thought they was about the get clowned, man!” an onlooker could be heard yelling after the big dunk. “They doing the clowning!”
BYU needs to get in touch with Cole — stat.
