Video: Here's a high school sophomore shattering a backboard

February 10, 2011|By Matt Vensel

When I was a high school sophomore, all I did was drink Mountain Dew, hang out in American Online chat rooms and play on my old-school Playstation. Keonta Vernon? He breaks backboards.

Check out this video of Vernon, a sophomore at Tulare Union High School in California, who shattered a backboard at a recent high school basketball game (in the backboard's defense, it looked a decade or so past its prime).

It's become an Internet sensation. I found it on The Big Lead, so allow me to give a hit tip to them.
