Kansas Coach Hits Blinfolded Half Court Shot – Amazing!

OK, I’d like to see Lebron, Kobe, D. Wade or any NBA player attempt what Olathe High School Girls Basketball Coach Joel Branstrom did last week.  In a pep rally for the school’s teams in this Kansas town, Coach Branstrom took on the challenge of getting blindfolded, twirled around twice and then attempting a half-court shot.   If he hit the shot,  “Final Four” tickets will be awarded to him, if he didn’t he’d still look like a good sport for trying.

To the surprise of  everyone in attendance Coach Branstrom, a former walk-on to the University of Kansas Basketball team in 1997 – hit the shot!  Incredible!

Olathe High School didn’t really have tickets to this year’s Final Four – because really, the odds of hitting this shot probably 1 in 99 attempts.  What they did have were  gift certificates to a local Mexican restaurant.  Final Four tickets or not, Coach Branstrom should be proud… This is by far one of the hardest and coolest trick shots I have ever seen.
