Trashaun Willis of Washington, Iowa, was born with only one arm – but he did something pretty special Thursday night.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound eighth-grader stole a pass, raced the length of the floor and amazingly dunked the ball.
Willis was immediately surrounded by his teammates, celebrating the moment with some chest bumping.
Even crazier, this isn't the first time he's dunked in a game.
"It was such a great feeling," Willis told MaxPreps. "I actually dunked a couple of weeks ago in a tournament. But it's still an amazing moment to share with my teammates."
Willis recorded 14 points in leading the Demons to a 41-31 victory over nearby Fort Madison.
The Washington Middle School athlete also played quarterback and linebacker this season on the gridiron, running for 13 touchdowns and throwing for nine more.
