Slam Dunk Champ Is 5’10″
Last month, a video of a Jacob Tucker pulling off a series of spectacular slam dunks became a viral hit. What made the video so striking is that Tucker, a guard for Division III school Illinois College, is under six-feet tall — A trait that isn’t typically associated with the dunk. Now if you told me that this guy weighed 250 lbs then I’d start to believe that there was hope for me!
The purpose of the video was to convince the public to vote Turner into the NCAA’s annual slam dunk contest. The public obliged, and on Thursday night, he justified their decision by winning it.
Read on to see Tucker and his amazing 50-inch vertical jump take the title.
