Meet Jacob Tucker

Move over Spud Webb. Jacob Tucker is a 5’10” guard from Illinois College (Division III), and on Thursday he won the NCAA slam dunk contest. That’s right. He flew over, out-dunked and outdazzled all the Division I bigshots. I don’t know what else to say. This guy is amazing. The winning dunks are above. Some bonus dunks are below.

    WOW! Who says white men can’t jump? While this white man can’t, that one can. He has springs in those legs.

    Denny, any attempts being made to recruit him for the Bulldogs?

    Amazing! The Lord blessed this young man with some extraordinary legs. There was the North Carolina State guard who could jump like this, but I forget his name.
    Thanks for posting this.

    Have a terrific weekend, and Lord’s day.

    wow this kid is amazing. That’s unbelievable how high he can jump. He is my height and i can only jump half as high. Incredible! I love the last dunk on the second video.

    His head scrapes the heavens more than John Piper’s sermons.

    Tell me you’re not talking about David Thompson. How could you forget David Thompson’s name? “The Skywalker”. Seriously. The man who Michael Jordan stated was his inspiration.

    5 foot 10? This is unreal.

    Yep, David Thompson. That guy could sky. Thanks.
    My memory is failing me. I guess when you near 60 years old the brain cells take a hike somewhere.

    Jason, are you trying to tell us that Michael Jordan complimented and gave credit to someone else??? I will need to see documentation of this.
