Owen Groesser is normally the Van Hoosen junior high school basketball team's manager, but not this game.  On the final game of the season, the coach made him a starter. 

His teammates passed him the ball on the first play of the game and he nailed a 3 pointer!  Within 2 minutes, he nailed a second three pointer!  The crowd went absolutely wild.

The Van Hoosen junior high school students quickly spread the story on Twitter with the hashtag #GetOwenOnSportsCenter.  Within hours, Owen was on ESPN's Sportcenter!!



And that's what's good,

Jon
