Earlier this summer, a hard foul in a local pick-up basketball game somehow earned a 911 call. It was spilled milk really, and rather comical someone would actually deem something so common and trivial an emergency, but perhaps it was genius because one police officer in Florida knows a thing or two about the game.
No matter where you live, or where you travel to, it’s easy to find out how much ball is life. And at Strawberry Crest High School in Dover, Florida, a police officer, still rocking his uniform got busy and got buckets on one of the students.
It’s uncertain which men’s league team the cop plays for, but it’s probably safe to say he fills up the stat sheet when he’s not on duty.
Once he gathers full control of the ball at the top of the key, the officer gives a hard fake like he is about to chuck the ball at the defender’s head. Then, he crosses it over quickly from right to left, crosses it back, gives a little hesitation dribble with another crossover before making his finishing move.
After putting the ball behind his back, the cop pulls it back with a nice step-back move and launches an 18-footer that rattles home.
At any gym, on any given day, this can happen to anyone. There’s undoubtedly someone being shown up, somewhere, right this very moment.
It’s just not often you see a police officer still in uniform giving the business with strong handles to a student with over at least 50 students on hand to witness and record it.
Say what you want about the social media era, and how addicting it is for today’s youth, but, without it, this type of video doesn’t exist and we never would have known that one time a local youth hooper got violated by a police officer.
