You might not be familiar with him now, but you NEED to see him do an AMAZING set of flips in this "gymnastics-off" with a cheerleader from Groton, Southern Cayuga's rival school. It is insane.

Sean told BuzzFeed that he was inspired to study gymnastics by his sister, a competitive dancer.

"I was always interested in how beautiful and yet powerful it was to be able to train your body to perform all different kinds of moves," he said.

He also wanted to make it clear that the challenge was simply meant to be a fun way to liven up the game.

"Healthy competition is important in furthering our skills and I respect the cheerleaders who clapped back," he said. "All we wanted to do was to get the crowd energized and make the basketball game more amusing."
