Why We Love Sports: Third grade teacher drains full court shot
Third grade teacher Ms. Fitz promised her class hot chocolate if she made a full court shot and Ms. Fitz delivered for her students, draining the shot with her students cheering her on.
at Holy Trinity School Georgetown in Washington, D.C. According to a video that has quickly gone viral, she reportedly promised her students hot chocolate if she sank what looks to be roughly a 50-foot shot.
Ms. Fitz clearly knows her way around half-court shots, as she followed the time-honored procedure of running up to release the ball increasing momentum. She also released the ball with her elbow in and full pronation, evidence that she may have toiled in a summer basketball camp or had a coach who focused on proper shooting technique.
As you can see in the video below from CBC Sports, she nails the shot
A moment those kids will never forget 🥰
