Mater Dei is an all-boys school in Potomac, Maryland, and likely home to a few Baltimore Ravens fans. Before last Sunday’s Super Bowl, the school held an assembly and presented the students with a challenge: If one of them made a particular shot, they would all be given Super Bowl Monday off. According to Frequency, a representative from each grade was given a chance. After the first seven failed, it came down to first-grader Blake Harper from the free-throw line.
Nice job, Blake. You’re now officially better at a basketball skill than Dwight Howard.
