Beaufort High School basketball player Jawan Mack hit a three-quarter court buzzer beater against Hilton Head Island High School on Jan. 3 that was featured among ESPN SportsCenter's top 10 plays on Thursday night.
The shot completed a 37-2 run by the Eagles to end the first half in a 77-31 rout of the Seahawks, a game recorded by Hilton Head Island’s WHHI-TV.
Beaufort High students Brady Cormier and Jordan Bates tweeted WHHI’s YouTube highlight of the shot to @SportsCenter on Thursday with the hashtag #SCtop10.
The shot made the top 10, coming in at No. 2 among the day’s highlights, and SportsCenter aired Cormier’s tweet in a tease to the top 10, saying his name on the air.
Cormier later tweeted, “My life has been made ... thank you @jwiz34 for being the man and thank you @sctop10 for posting it!!”
After the highlight aired, Mack changed his Twitter handle to Mr. ESPN.
