Watch a first-grader win his school a day off by making a free throw

February 08, 2013|By Melissa Rohlin

On Friday before the Super Bowl, a first-grader named Blake Harper was given a chance to become the most beloved kid at school.

If he made a free throw, the entire student body would have the Monday following the Super Bowl off.

Before Harper took his shot, two older students were given the same offer if they could make three-pointers. Clank. Clank.

It was all on little Harper, a student at Mater Dei School inĀ Bethesda, Md.

Harper took a couple of dribbles then swished his free throw attempt, sending the students at the school into a frenzy.

Suffice it to say, this kid will never have trouble finding somewhere to sit in the lunch yard.
