It was a day that this teen will cherish for the rest of his life.
High school senior Nicholas Bennett made it his goal to score 1,000 half-court shots during his high school career: an impressive ambition for any teen, let alone someone who's not on the varsity basketball team.
On Saturday, Bennett, who's the North Hall High School basketball team manager, met his goal and got so much more: a roaring crowd, cheers, and hoisted onto the shoulders of happy fans.
To start off the memorable day, the team's coach put him in the first play of the game — where he scored the first points in an uncontested layup.
Then at halftime, with hundreds of fans watching, he made the 1,000th half court shot as a roar of cheers lit up the gym.
“I felt like I was in heaven,” Bennett told Access North Georgia, of his ride around the court on the shoulders of his North Hall classmates. “I never dreamed of anything like this.”
