Watch as This High Schooler Breaks the Laws of Gravity

bill-swift - January 3, 2013

You might want to remember the name Victor Dukes. He's the high school sophomore in this clip who makes gravity his bitch and shows that maybe some humans can fly. This went down in Arkansas where Victor and his Nettleton High team were taking on Manila High.

Dukes just shakes past a defender near the top of the key and then takes off. What you can't see in the first angle is that he actually leaps over a defender who briefly thought about trying to take a charge and then bails. When the clip gets about 19 seconds in, the person with the camera fortunately records the replay on the big screen. It's then that you see what happened. What I don't understand is how Dukes just keeps rising up. I figured maybe he stepped on the defender for an extra boost, but it appears the 6'3" Dukes just has crazy leaps.
