Welcome back to #SocialStudies! As we head into the start of our most popular tournament this weekend – we bring you another collection of the amazing, spectacular and just plain odd.
Warning: there is a panda in one of the videos below. I promise it’s not a San Francisco Giant.
1. 'Best kicker in the world' ... ???
If you missed it last week: Here’s a high school place-kicker from Washington booting a 67-yard field goal. Yes, 67 yards. No mention of a tailwind.
2. Lord of the Dance
This next video combines two of my favorite things: bad dancing and a teacher doing something totally unexpected. (Be careful of your speaker volume: this one has some loud moments.)
3. All hail the king
Hate him or love him: LeBron James does some things with a basketball that just … astound. Here’s a move to work on in your driveways, kids.
4. Watch this one twice
Speaking of sweet moves; here’s a guy you’ve never heard of doing something on a tennis court that you’ve probably never seen.
5. Give that guy a championship
NBC25 out of Flint supplies us with this Top Play selection from Week 9 … Damon Thomas of Fenton goes up to grab a TD pass and manages to hold on in a game that clinched a share of the Flint Metro League title for his team. Fenton (8-1) welcomes Farmington Hills Harrison (6-3) on Friday night to start their playoff bid.
6. Dude. Perfect. Borderline unbelievable.
And to close, a new trick shot video from the guys at Dude Perfect. Take six minutes and enjoy.
We know you’re all on YouTube daily ... so send us your favorite vids!
We'll watch those and see you again next time for more catching up on your #SocialStudies.
